Intense dark straw colour with bright nuances of gold and medium legs. Bouquet of ripe stone fruit, citrus, almond, with hint of oak spice, lanolin and fresh butter. Second nose shows more oak creaminess, lemon lime and dried fruits extract but with hints of vanilla beans and fresh cream. Rich but fresh attack of citrus and stone fruit. Dense and fresh midpalate with layers of ripe citrus, melon, ripe mango and wave of oak flavours around a core of firm tannins and elegant textural elements. The final is long, quite persistent and in line with the midpalate. Fruits, texture and tension create the complexity of the final of this wine.

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.
