The demeanour of the winery Dachshunds inspired the name 'Barking Mad' in particular when the trucks pull into the winery laden with grapes ready to be crushed during vintage. By the end of a long, hot vintage, the winery team are all Barking Mad too!.

91 Points, James Halliday, www.winecompanion.com.au
"Very pale colour 18 months down the track, and while not super-intense, does have very attractive ripe citrus flavours, well-balanced and lengthened by crisp acidity. Drink whenever you wish over the next four years."

93 POINTS ~ Nicks Wine Merchants, www.nicks.com.au
"The only thing barking mad about this wine is the price!" Superb opaque black purple colour with deep dark purple black tinged hue. The nose displays top notes of black raspberry and liquorice followed by some vanillin oak and spice. Representing fantastic value the palate has excellent body weight and a level of richness not normally seen at this price point. It boasts an opulent profile of ripe blackberries and liquorice follwed by some dark chocolate with a background of toasty vanillin oak and spice. Plush fleshy texture with soft velvet smooth tannins. Medium to long spicy blackberry, liquorice and toasty oak aftertaste."
