Dense and dark black cherry colour with nuances of purple with heavy, slow legs. Intense and aromatic bouquet of wild red berries, dark cherries, wildflowers and vanilla beans with nuances of chocolate and mocha. The second nose is showing more ripe blackberries, a hint of dried flowers as well as undergrowth. The palate is broad and refined attack on ripe blackberries, a firm, structured wine with a nice tension balanced with a lush texture. The midpalate expresses more fruit with layers of red and black wild berries, oak spice, dried flowers and creamy cacao beans. The final shows length and tension on fruit, minerality and firmer tannins with great elegant texture.

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.
