About this Item

Hope Marguerite, 2015
6 (1 x 6) 750ml

The Beaumont family were among the first to harness the potential of wine grapes in the picturesque Bot River district and with Sebastian Beaumont at the helm their reputation is established as a fine wine producer, spearheaded by the consistently superb reserve Chenin from the oldest vineyard blocks on the farm (planted 1974 & 1978).

Quietly regarded as one of South Africa’s benchmark Chenin Blancs, this barrel fermented, elegant style put Bot River and Beaumont on the fine wine map. Known to age for a decade or more, the Hope Marguerite has the longest consecutive Platter 5* track record in the history of the guide.

Critics Ratings

‘Scintillating 2015 reflects super harvest but retains restrained styling of 2014 (4.5 stars, 94 pts). Lively tension between leesy width and vibrant citrus tang. Year oak, 15% new, shows as a delicious, understated oatmeal gloss. Proven pedigree from 40-year-old vines.’ – Platter’s SA Wine Guide 2017, 5*

‘The Hope Marguerite often has a little residual sugar (7.1 grams here), but like a great Vouvray Demi-Sec the sweetness is balanced by acidity. Toasty oak, honey and tarte tatin favours, lots of volume and texture on the palate and acidity that lifts the finish to another plane.’ – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2016, 94/100

'Beaumont's Hope Marguerite is always a stunner. The 2015 bottling opens with forward fynbos and baking-spice aromas that are supported by notes of red apple, orange blossom and fennel. The medium-weight mouthfeel boasts rich flavors of spiced citrus and apple pie, with waves of toasted spice and honeyed almond dancing through the long, evolving finish. It's a complex wine that should drink well through 2022.’ – Lauren Buzzeo, Wine Enthusiast, 92/100 (May 2017)
