Declan Reynolds - Tuesday, April 07, 2015

Riesling, Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz from Reillys Barking Mad range have all been included in this month’s Winestate magazine TOP 40 BEST BUYS under $20!  

Barking Mad Watervale Riesling 2014

4 STARS & TOP 40 BEST BUY UNDER $20 Winestate Magazine, March/April 2015 Issue

“Light fresh citrus nose; fragrances of lemon zest. Palate offers a mouthful of excellent varietal fruit flavours with good length acidity.”

RATING 8.8 / 10 Max Crus, The Daily Examiner, Jan 2, 2015 “If forced to nominate one region from which all the riesling for the rest of your life would be sourced, Watervale would be a contender. You could live on Clare riesling and cab sav alone without quibble.”  

91 POINTS Tony Keys, Key Review of Wine, 28 January 2015  

Barking Mad Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

4.5 STARS & TOP 40 BEST BUY UNDER $20 Winestate Magazine, March/April 2015 Issue

“Great depth of colour with rich sweet oak aromas sitting on top of the Cherry Ripe-like fruit…. it’s full of flavour and underscored with lovely sweet tannins.”  

RATING 9 / 10 Max Crus, The Daily Examiner, Jan 2, 2015 “Just because the dog on the label looks like mine doesn’t mean this isn’t fabulous value wine. Rich, refined and pleasantly pungent.”
