MENU's Wine of the Week: Beaumont Hope Marguerite 2014

The best Chenin at the showcase, for us, was Beaumont's Hope Marguerite, named for Sebastian Beaumont's grandmother. Layers and layers of fruit and complexity, great minerality and punch, this barrel fermented Chenin is a wine to pair with rich food or just enjoy with good friends. It will cellar well too and reward. Platter gives it 4½ stars. We paid R240 a bottle at the farm
