Beaumont 'Hope Marguerite' Chenin Blanc, Bot River, South Africa 2014

19.95

Winemag: "The 2014 has a beguiling nose – some reduction, citrus and white peach, hints of flowers and spice. The palate is lean but not mean with fresh acidity and a long finish. Just a hint of leesy complexity. It’s extremely elegant and shows great winemaking deftness." 95 points

The Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Hope Marguerite Chenin Blanc comes from the estate's two oldest blocks of vine, fermented in barrel in a combination of settled and unsettled juice to obtain a more leesy, reductive character. Matured in 15% new oak, the nose is very closed at the moment and probably needs a couple of years to find its voice. The palate is more promising though: good weight in the mouth, quite creamy in texture with hints of brioche and sherbet towards the appealing finish. Just give this a little time for those aromatics to open." 91 points

Jancis Robinson: "Sandalwood and green tobacco spice open up to oranges and clove. Slightly smoky vanilla top note. Bold creaminess clad in expensive oak - sophisticated and competent and ambitious with racy apricot tang. Haute couture South African Chenin." 17 points
