With more than 350 years of winemaking history, South Africa is often described as a bridge between the Old and New Worlds. Most wines are made using New World winemaking techniques but often have more in common stylistically with their European counterparts. The country's signature variety is Pinotage, which was crossed between Pinot Noir and Cinsault at Stellenbosch University in 1925. In addition, large amounts of Shiraz, Cabernet and Merlot are grown. Chenin Blanc, or Steen as it is known locally, is the most popular white variety.Much of the country's wine production is around the Western Cape where mountains, valleys and plateaus allow winemakers to produce a diverse range of styles. Sparkling wine is even produced and named Cap Classique.
The 2020 version of Beaumont’s Chenin Blanc is made from 84% Bot River fruit and 16 % from the Overberg, making the wine of Origin for this vintage Cape South Coast. This is the first time that they have had to source from outside the Bot River ward. Yields were very low due to drought. 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!
