Bright and clear pale yellow colour with nuances of pale green. Persistent medium small bubbles flow in continuous chains, ending in a pearl-like band around the rim.The nose is complex and vibrant, the nose draws you in with tight aromas of pear and apple, giving way to a second nose full of peach and nectarine, balanced with a fresh, slate-like minerality. The palate is clean, crisp and exciting. Firm but supple effervescence carries the lush aromas of ripe stone fruit and tight minerality across the midpalate, where the delicate dance between sweetness and fresh acidity entice the palate. The mousse releases towards the finish, filling the mouth and leading to a balanced finish filled with crisp citrus and lush texture, the last burst of the bubbles draws you back for another sip.

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.
