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!.

Introducing our latest Barking Mad pup - young, fresh and little bit cheeky, this label perfectly represents the wine!
Premium fruit has been picked from our St Clare Vineyard at Watervale where the elevation and soil is perfect for growing Riesling, giving the wine mineral characteristics.
Lifted floral and citrus aromas are followed by delicate lemon and lime flavours on the palate. A hint of minerality, this wine has rich, concentrated fruit and is finished by crisp, refreshing acid.
Enjoy now or be rewarded by cellaring for up to 10 years to enjoy an aged Riesling.
3 Stars, Winestate Magazine, Clare Valley and Surrounding Regions, July/August 2012 Issue
"Attractive subtle varietal aromas and nice delicacy to the limey palate. Has potential."
Rating: 94, Value: 5 STARS, Nicks Wine Merchants, www.nicks.com.au
"Brilliant very pale straw almost water like colour with watery hue. The nose displays distinct lemon and lime top notes followed by some orange rind and a hint of talc. The palate follows on from the nose demonstrating excellent concentration for its price point. Mouthfilling flavours of lemon and lime followed by a touch of orange rind and mineral. Clean crisp acid finish with long lime, lemon and mineral aftertaste. Drink over the next 2-3 years. (2011-2014)."
