About the winery and the wine

The Beaumont family story, which started in 1974 with Raoul & Jayne is one where fact, fable and fantasy merge - a story where wine, food and family are always at the centre of the narrative - a story in which a family filled with big-hearted and impassionate people, strive to capture the essence of happiness, be it in the cellar, in the kitchen or sitting on a farmhouse stoep. It is a story that applauds the efforts of the everyday and the memories that are made through generous sharing of the spoils of the land.

 

The making of Beaumont Chenin blanc: early picking to preserve freshness, and balance in the wine. Our new press produced gave us very clean juice and I think it has had a very positive effect on this vintage. A very slow and cool fermentation separately with different yeast strains for more complexity and then blended after fermentation. The maturation was in average 6 months on gross lees in tank.

 

Tasting notes

The 2020 vintage produced another year of great health fruit. Cooler wetter winter helped vines rest but the summer was dry resulting in tiny berries, high natural acid levels and great fruit purity. No rot! Very expressive wine with a lovely balanced palate. This vintage is a beautiful expression of the grape capturing the full flavour and potential that our terroir has to offer. It is a delicious example of cooler climate Chenin Blanc fermented in concrete and stainless steel tanks. Dry, fresh and delicious!

 

What to pair with Beaumont, Chenin Blanc?

This wine pairs very well with seafood, especially shellfish and spicy Thai and Indian curries. With cheese it will go very well with Brie.
