B Vintners, Haarlem to Hope 750ml 2017South Africa, Cape Coastal
'Poised & charming blend celebrating heirloom varieties chenin & semillon (64/28), muscats de Frontignan & d’Alexandrie. 2017 expressive pear & ginger, ripe fruit giving the impression of sweetness though bone-dry, savouriness from older oak, as in equally stellar 2016.' – Platter's Guide, 5* (95/100)
'Haarlem to Hope - a reference to the early Dutch settlers’ voyage to the Cape - is a Cheninbased white blend with Semillon and the two Muscats, aged in old wood. Waxy, herbal and refreshing with some orange zest and lemongrass undertones. Drink 2018-22.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2018, 92/100
'The 2017 Haarlem to Hope is a blend of four grape varieties: 64% Chenin Blanc, 28% Sémillon, 4% Muscat de Frontignan and 4% Muscat d’Alexandria. It was matured for 12 months in used French oak. It has a perfumed bouquet of yellow flowers, linseed and a touch of oiliness; _mirabelle and sage scents emerge with time. The fresh, energetic palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, and the marmalade- and pistachio-scented finish is nicely poised. Excellent.' – Neal Martin, Vinous, 92/100
