MENU’s Wine of the Week. Beaumont New Baby 2017

Tasted at the Raath Promotions trade show this week, this wine impressed us. After we tasted it, we discovered that it was the wine that everyone was talking about at the tasting. It was made by Sebastian Beaumont and is an unusual blend of old vine Chenin blanc, Sauvignon blanc, Semillon, Chardonnay and Colombar, all grown on the farm. It is heady with the aromas of the five components, and full with complex flavours, taking something from each of the varietals – some ripe conference pear, white peaches and good lemon acidity

The flavours are excitingly mutable and lasting on the palate. It is going to be exceptional with food, seafood, fish, rich mushroom dishes. What an amazing wine, different and delicious. And this has lots of aging potential. R350 a bottle on the farm. As Sebastian puts it: “It came together in a flash with perfect harmony and proportion … a wine that speaks of the sum of its parts”. It needs entering into some competitions, it might just win some prizes
