As a friend would say, this wine is completely smashable. It is the perfect wine for a braai; it’s white, crisp, easy to drink and you could have lots of it whilst having a great braai. Beaumont Chenin Blanc is a great Heritage Day wine because we grow more Chenin Blanc in South Africa than any other country in the world. You can make any style from it – from sweet to sparkling to dry! It’s not just about how much we grow, but also the outstanding quality that South Africa produces. In this writer’s opinion, our Chenin Blancs are as good if not better than international wines including the Loire valley in France which is the wine’s spiritual home.
