SKU: DANDASMER18
The 2018 Dandelion Vineyards Damsel of Barossa Merlot offers aromas of wild berries and then bursting blueberries and sweet cassis. Alive aromatics complete with the best merlot fruit reminiscent of a high acid blueberry jam. The aroma leads and the bouquet faintly hints at the vaguest waft of spice from older oak barrels. The palate features flavours of damson plum, blueberry and blackberry. It's a merlot that sings and shines, but a clear acidic and tannin backbone keeps it on the road. The after-palate is long and brings with it whispers of dry dark chocolate.
