OUR WINE | Varietals & barrels
Sebastian and his team are fortunate to have 40 years of viticulture experience on this unique farm.
His wine making approach is instinctive, believing that wine is made in the vineyards and minimal intervention is needed. Ancient, low-yielding Chenin Blanc and Pinotage vines are honoured in the process, allowing the wines to be a true reflection of the land and vineyards. He has a hands-on approach to wine-making, using old-cellar techniques like natural yeasts and old open concrete ‘’kuipe’’ fermenters.
His non-conformist approach embraces the old but also creatively uses modern winemaking techniques to produce limited quantities of specialised, characterful and authentic wines.

BEAUMONT CHENIN BLANC
A fresh and pure unwooded Chenin Blanc, made to express the delicious purity of the grape. A lovely wine to enjoy on its own or even better with a slightly spicy dish.
A Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon blend with loads of flavour and soft tannins.
Beaumont produced the bottled the first single varietal Mourvedre in the country in 1999
and since then we have produced limited amounts of this fascinating grape every year.
BEAUMONT GOUTTE D'OR
This is a pure Chenin Blanc noble late harvest with delicious dried fruit character and a lovely balance between sweetness and acidity.
BEAUMONT HOPE MARGUERITE
Named after our grandmother, Hope Marguerite Beaumont, this barrel fermented and matured Chenin Blanc is always elegant and complex. Winner of four Platter 5 star ratings, it is seen as one of South Africa’s benchmark Chenin wines.
This is an elegant cooler climate style Pinotage. Most of the grapes come from our 40 year old vineyard. The wine shows more red fruit characters and a medium bodied palate and ages beautifully.
Named after Ariane Beaumont – this is a classic Bordeaux style blend.
This is a unique port style wine created from a blend of 4 vintages (’05,’07,’08,’09) of our port.
BEAUMONT NEW BABY
Born from the 5 varietals grown on the farm, the 2015 maiden vintage has brought together a white blend to partner the Vitruvian. Formed from old vine Chenin, Sauvignon, Chard, Semillon and Colombar
BEAUMONT DANGERFIELD SYRAH
This is the first vintage of straight Syrah since 2004. Rich in fruit and spice with supple tanins, this is a very delicious wine.
Our flagship red blend gets its name from our 200 year old watermill. This is an unapologetically Beaumont blend based on Mourvedre, Pinotage, Syrah and Cabernet Franc.
