Beaumont Chenin Blanc 2013

The 2013 Chenin Blanc was made from 100% Bot River fruit, capturing the full flavour and the potential our terroir has to offer. Following on from the very successful 2011 vintage, that won us our first 4 and a half star rating in Platter and the excellent 2012 vintage with 12.5% Alcohol. The 2013 is a bit bolder and fuller of fruit and a true reflection of the vintage.

Great season with plenty of challenges gave the wine a very individual stamp. Very expressive!

Lovely fresh tropical fruit aromas flow onto a crisp fresh palate with a perfect balance between the acidity and sweetness, giving this wine great length and intensity.

Great with seafood, especially shellfish, chicken dishes and spicy Thai style food.
