Hope Marguerite is a pure expression of our two oldest Chenin vineyards and this, the 20th vintage, captures another great year in the bottle. The 2016 is similar in style to our other even numbered vintages, 2012 & 2014. Aromas are savoury and spicy with apple pie and pear fruit. Fresh with a crisp acidity will keep the wine energetic and lively for beautiful aging. The analysis as follows: Alc:13.5 Total acid:6.5g/l pH:3.24 R.S. 2.9 g/l
Hope has now received 5 Platter five star ratings. This new vintage will only be reviewed later in the year. In the meantime please feel free to send us your impressions of the wine.
