The Head Honcho was created from our 10 acre single Cabernet vineyard. This vineyard produces small bervries full of intense flavour, harvesting a tiny 1 tonne per acre. In the 2012 vintage, it had only organic additives, and no pesticides (none have been used in this vineyard for 10 years).
We aged this wine for 24 months in the finest French Oak barrels. From these, only the most complex flavours from the finest barrels were selected. This year only 3 barrels made the cut, creating only 100 cases, with only 880 bottles being released to the public.
We are very proud of our wines - we hope you enjoy them.

100% Lenswood Pinot Noir.
Kept on a mix of French and American oak for 11 months before bottling.
Clear bright ruby colour. Sour cherry and raspberry nose lifted by wet leaves and mushroom. Fresh cranberry and red cherry palate with hints of licorice and lively yet smooth tannins.
Anderson Hill O Series 2018 Shiraz has taken out the ‘Best In Show’ at the world’s largest and most influential wine competition, the Decanter World Wine Awards!
The wine is dark in colour, with lots of episcopal purple; the aromas are bright, lifted and billowing, not just cherry-fresh but with some billowing cherry blossom in there too. In the mouth, the wine is deep, round, poised and lively: an explosion of vivid fruits with a peppery finish.” – Trophy & 97 Points Decanter DWWA 2020
Lifted red cherry, plum and fig are matched with florals and baking spices as well as hints of savoury, earthy notes. The palate features red cherry and cranberry notes which are framed with lovely natural acidity and long fine tannins. A beautifully textured wine with plush, persistent length.
