  • WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT?


    Brightly opaque with flashes of dark violet and ruby. A leggy viscosity. A compote of wild berries and then bursting blueberries and sweet cassis that's been freshly bottled. 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. A flooding mouthful of wine that sweeps all before it. Fruit acid and tannin combine to make a merlot AWD 4WD. The Damson plum and blueberry and blackberry flavours drive the wine and give it a perfect weight. This is Merlot that sings and shines, but a clear acid and tannin backbone keeps it on the road. The after-palate is long and brings with it whispers of dry dark chocolate.

  • WHO MADE IT?
  • Dandelion Vineyards defies normal description, it is perhaps Australia's most quixotic fusion of vineyard and vigneron. Every bottle signs off with - Wish you were here... Every wine is sourced from a single site. Founder, owner, winemaker - Elena Brooks - is a polymath and perfectionist on a lifelong vinous treasure hunt, following the inspiration of the Dandelion Flower's Wishing Clock. Vineyards = Family. Wines = Children. Serious stuff. Proper fun, absolutely.

    Damson plum, five-spice, choco-cherry and some mint slip their way across gently astringent tannins. A solid merlot.
