A mythical Margaret River ‘wolf’ was not the inspiration for the Howling Wolves name. Rather, it was the founders’ love of American ‘Blues’ music, in particular their all time “hall of fame” favourite, the legendary Chester Burnett - aka “Howlin’ Wolf”. So, in August 2004 while listening to a howler of a version of “The Wolf is at your door” the ‘Howling Wolf’ brand was born - to be changed later that year to ‘Howling Wolves’, after discovering a tiny appellation called Wolfe in Germany, that disallowed the use of the great man’s moniker.

Winery Tasting Notes
A characteristic deep, rich maroon with beguiling red-purple hue.
The nose is a symphony of enticing aromas of ripe dark berries, plums and cherries with hints of crushed tobacco leaf and dark cocoa chocolate.
The judicious use of fine grain French oak creates an intriguing combo of smoky vanilla and mocha, adding complexity and body to a sumptuous palate exquisitely layered with rich dark fruits and fine silky tannins.
