'Sauvignon Blanc from Durbanville and Stellenbosch is combined with 37% Semillon from Franschhoek and Elgin to produce this spicy, toasty, 10% new wood-aged cuvée. Elegance and balance are complemented by flavours of grapefruit and passion fruit, a hint of cream and the extract of a warmer vintage. Drink 2020-26.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2020, 93/100

'Barrel-fermented blend showcasing varieties, not site. 2018 led by sauvignon (62%) ex Darling & Durbanville, semillon ex Franschhoek & Stellenbosch. Tropical tones, some herbal notes & white asparagus, satisfyingly focused though tad less vivacious than 2017 (5 stars, 96 pts).' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (93/100)

'A modern and intriguing white Bordeaux blend, the Delaire Graff White Reserve illustrates a playful juxtaposition of character. Handpicked and whole bunch pressed, matured separately for 5 months in French oak barrel, then blended and kept on primary lees for an additional 8 months, this wine defines precision. The vibrant acidity of Sauvignon Blanc dances amidst crisp flavours of citrus and pineapple, while the Semillon portrays structure and a waxy mouthfeel. Crafted with patience, it is a treasure of multifaceted complexity.' – Winemaker
