origin Stellenbosch, South Africa

Haarlem To Hope is a blend of Chenin Blanc, Semillon; Muscat Blanc and Muscat d’ Alexandrie. The varieties were brought to the Cape, by the early Dutch settlers. They are part of the cornerstones of grape growing in the Cape of Good Hope, more than three centuries they have been cultivated, by the colourful people of our vibrant land. The wine is a celebration of 350 years of heritage, in a land of hope.

A concentration of bright fruit on the nose that follows through onto the palate, that creates tension and excitement all at once. Nectarine, pear and melon are given depth by touches of spice, lemongrass and ginger, while hints of floral and scrub enhances a further dimension. Time in older oak, with close lees contact, has helped to give the wine breadth and depth on the palate and keeps the focus with a saline and savoury linger.
