Beaumont Chenin Blanc 2017

Our Chenin Blanc was made from 100% Bot River fruit, 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!

Great with seafood, especially shellfish and spicy Thai and Indian curries.
