Barking Mad Shiraz has one of those labels that endears from the get go. We can all relate! This is a delicious Shiraz from Reilly's wines in the Clare Valley. It's rich and smooth, loaded up with spicy dark fruits and has a nice touch of toast from its 18 months in French oak.

Nick Butler, The Real Review, May 2019 (2017 Vintage)
"Medium purple colour with crimson edges. Asian spice and ripe red fruits on the bouquet. It's fresh and possess a lovely length. Light on its feet and balanced. Tannins, fruit and oak (soft) in harmony"
4 Stars & Best Buy, Cuisine Australian Shiraz Tasting, June 2019 (2016 Vintage)
"The Barking Mad range pays tribute to winery Dachshunds. This vibrant and toasty wine displays engaging flavours of dark berry fruits, dark plums and liquorice. A stout wine with dusty oak tannins and a warm spicy finish."
Best Value Buy, Winestate Magazine, May/June 2018 (2016 Vintage)
"Big, rich, full bodied Shiraz, with lots of sweet fruits, some spices, hints of rhubarb and slightly drying oak tannins."
