Beaumont Chenin Blanc 2019

An Unrivaled Ancient Purity

Beaumont‚Äôs Chenin Blanc is a love¬≠ly blend of grapes from two dif¬≠fer¬≠ent parts of the South Coast of South Africa, result¬≠ing in a won¬≠der¬≠ful blend¬≠ed flavor.

TAST­ING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR

This is an aro¬≠mat¬≠ic cool-cli¬≠mate Chenin Blanc fer¬≠ment¬≠ed in con¬≠crete and stain¬≠less-steel tanks, ful¬≠ly ben¬≠e¬≠fit¬≠ing from the grape vari¬≠eties that go into it. Most of the grapes used in this bot¬≠tle come from the Bot Riv¬≠er in Walk¬≠er Bay, with a lit¬≠tle addi¬≠tion from Over¬≠berg vine¬≠yards, which are still along the South Coast. Pale gold in col¬≠or, it has pro¬≠nounced green apple, pear, and apri¬≠cot notes on the nose, with a dry, acidic medi¬≠um body. Cit¬≠rus fla¬≠vors, apples, pear, and lime zest are promi¬≠nent on the tongue.

PAIR­INGS

Most Chenin Blanc wines go well with seafood, and this one is no dif¬≠fer¬≠ent. It pairs with seafood plat¬≠ters and grilled lean fish meat‚ÄČ‚ÄĒ‚ÄČbut that is not the end of its range. This wine is per¬≠fect with refresh¬≠ing crisp sal¬≠ads or cream-based chick¬≠en entr√©es. The folk at Beau¬≠mont Win¬≠ery also rec¬≠om¬≠mend this wine with spicy Thai food.

MIN­I­MAL­ISM AND AN ANCIENT GRAPE

With 40 years of expe¬≠ri¬≠ence in the wine¬≠mak¬≠ing indus¬≠try, Sebas¬≠t¬≠ian Beau¬≠mont and his team take an instinc¬≠tive approach to their vine¬≠yards. The less they han¬≠dle or inter¬≠vene with the vines, the bet¬≠ter they believe their yields will be. This suits the ancient Chenin Blank and Pino¬≠tage grapes they grow very well, tak¬≠ing most of their cues from the land itself. At Beau¬≠mont, the hands-on approach begins in the actu¬≠al wine¬≠mak¬≠ing process. They use old cel¬≠lar tech¬≠niques like open con¬≠crete ‚Äč‚Äúkuipe‚ÄĚ fer¬≠menters to coax their wines to full fermentation. 

Storage Instructions

Store your unopened bot¬≠tle in a cool, dry, and dark place safe from con¬≠stant vibra¬≠tion. Keep your bot¬≠tle hor¬≠i¬≠zon¬≠tal in a wine rack or cel¬≠lar to retain the moist¬≠ness of the cork. The ide¬≠al tem¬≠per¬≠a¬≠ture for stor¬≠age is between 7 to 15¬įC. Once opened, a bot¬≠tle will be good for 3 to 5 days stand¬≠ing upright in the refrigerator.
