An epic white at an attractive price

2012 Beaumont, Hope Marguerite Chenin Blanc, Bot River, South Africa (£15.95, www.vincisive.co.uk).

A breakaway faction of renegade South African producers called PIWOSA (an unsnappy acronym of Premium Independent Wineries of South Africa) hosted a brilliant tasting a few weeks ago. This is my pick of all of the white wines.

Sebastian Beaumont makes very attractive wines. His Goutte d’Or sweetie has been one of my favourite Cape wines for years and his newly released 2009 Vitruvian, a super-cuvée made from mourvèdre, pinotage, petit verdot, 12% cabernet franc and shiraz, is a future cult classic.

The ‘estate’ chenin blanc is a lime leaf-imbued stunner with deft aperitif skills, but I urge you to focus on this superior 2012 Hope Marguerite version, which Vincisive.co.uk has just received stock of. It’s a rare beauty, with stunning complexity, but it still manages to inspire juicy, citrusy glugging. I awarded this epic white a score that transcends what I previously thought were dry chenin blanc’s limits! I could easily chug down a bottle on a picnic, or equally serve it at Le Gavroche with the finest grilled Dover sole – an exemplary piece of winemaking at a very attractive price.
