'Delaire Graff's varietal Merlot hails from a 1999 block planted at 380 metres. Elegant, textured and scented, it's at the lighter end of the spectrum, despite its 14.5% alcohol, with leafy tannins, 60% new wood and a textured, fine-grained mid palate. Drink 2020-25.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2019, 92/100

'Forthcoming fruitcake & tobacco aromas open up 2017; sweet, succulent fruit with no great intensity, & fresh herbal twist on lingering finish. Balanced, with rounded but firm tannins. 80% new oak will integrate. 14.6% alcohol. Should keep good few years. Ex estate’s oldest single-vineyard.' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (90/100)

'Firm and well balanced, this Merlot is characterised by spicy, dark plum and berry flavours, whilst silky, ripe tannins ensure a long and lingering finish.' – Winemaker
