Dalfarras Merlot

Expert Reviews

Jeremy Oliver (2002 Vintage) says
Firm, slightly lean expression of merlot with meaty, earthy and smoky aromas of maraschino and dark cherries over sweet creamy vanilla oak and vegetal undertones. Smooth and generous, its lively merlot fruit overlies a fine and bony extract, while its rather assertive oak is just a little over-done.

James Halliday (2001 Vintage) says
Medium red-purple; the moderately intense bouquet has gentle slightly amorphous berry fruit, but with a savoury spice aspect hinting at the variety; the palate picks up where the bouquet leaves off, with olive/berry varietal fruit and minimal oak. The wine is sourced from vineyards across Australia, and comes with a completely new and very smart label design and package.

Max Allen & Peter Forrestal (2001 Vintage) says
The elegant new packaging for Dalfarras suggests a wine in the price bracket above $15 but we're assured that it is generally available under $15. This is effectively a second label for Tahbilk, a private venture for Alastair Purbrick and his wife Rosa (nee Dalfarra) whose stylish paintings grace the labels. The 2001 merlot shows vanillin oak, plum and redcurrant characters with savoury notes adding some complexity. It has a pleasing silky texture and a harmonious finish.
