'Reprise of the earliest varieties brought to the Cape by Dutch settlers, chenin (77%) with semillon, splashes muscats blanc & d’Alexandrie, 2019 has delightfully spiced tropical fruit, concentration & precision. Year in French oak, 25% new, vs all-older wood for 2018.' – Platter's Guide, 5* (95/100)

'Named after the early Dutch settlers’ new home in the Cape, this is an unusual and increasingly complex cuvée of three of the earliest South African imports: Chenin Blanc, Semillon and Muscat. Waxy, fresh and aromatic, with notes of orange zest and quince, leesy weight and a herbal tang. Drink 2021-24.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2020, 93/100

'The 2019 Haarlem to Hope comes from vineyards planted at altitude on old and weathered soils of decomposed granite and Table Mountain sandstone of the Helderberg or the Polkadraai Hills in Stellenbosch. It has an engaging bouquet of wild mint, fennel and a light touch of sesame, later enhanced by aromas of orange peel and peach skin. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, good weight and poise and hints of caramelized pear on the finish. Just a beautiful and intellectual wine from Raats. Drink 2022-2032.' – Neal Martin, Vinous, 92/100 (Apr 2021)
