This is a luscious version of Bravado – highly concentrated, with lovely earthy tones set over a bed of crushed ripe cherries. Oh my! Pair with anything beef or wintery.
Bright, dark berry colour with nuances of purple. The nose nose has Intense layers of varietal aromatics of dark berries, oak spice, cassis, undergrowth, with a touch of meatiness. The palate is smooth, yet firm, attack of blackcurrant with a dense and broad midpalate that balances between texture, fruit weight and mature tannins. Persistent final of warm berries and spice that leads to a pleasant and refreshing youthful tension.

Founded by John Howard, Megalomaniac began as a project to help raise funds for the Kids’ Health Links Foundation. After the original vintage sold out within 90 days, John realized the impact the program might have and the idea of expanding nationally became a strategic opportunity. A second vintage was launched, and since then neither the winery nor the foundation has looked back.
Megalomaniac’s bold branding tactics are at the forefront of the winery’s success. What was originally thought to bring scorn upon the winery has managed to accomplish quite the opposite.
These bottles feature a series of faceless executives wearing the iconic bowler hat accompanied by a unique title generally associated with the Megalomaniac brand. The name itself comes from a brief story that can be found on the back of each bottle.
