Story Behind the Wine:
“The Head Honcho” is a tribute to the meticulous craftsmanship of our Winemaker, Peter Douglas. Aged for 36 months in the finest French Oak barrels, only three barrels met our stringent criteria for complexity, resulting in a limited production of just 100 cases. Grown in our 10-acre single vineyard in Coonawarra, this vineyard’s small berries yield an incredibly intense flavour with a minuscule harvest of one tonne per acre.
Experience the layered complexity: intense black fruit aromas harmonize with a sweet oak lift. The palate is presently closed yet exudes pure varietal fruit characters and a robust tannin structure. Flavor notes to anticipate include chocolate, mint, blackberry, and a hint of vanilla
