Chenin Blanc
100% Shuh-NAN BLON
Chenin Blanc is often overlooked, but makes some of the most compelling white wines across Palate Character, including bone dry to sweet in style. Some of the best expressions come from France’s Loire Valley, and South Africa, which at their best are concentrated, crisp, sometimes long-lived, mineral driven wines that deserve more recognition for their high quality age-worthy whites.

Beaumont is a full working farm making wine, fruit, nuts, and olives using sustainable methods. Believing wine is “made in the vineyard,” chenin blanc comes from old, low-yielding vines that are naturally fermented in stainless steel and concrete tanks.

Beaumont’s chenin blanc is dry with crisp acidity and varietal character and offers a good value.
