Returning to his home along the Nagambie Lakes after the completion of service during World War II, Eric Purbrick discovered a cache of wine, hidden circa 1876 under the family estate cellars. Though pale in colour, it was sound and drinkable after seven decades. The promise of long lived red wine inspired Purbrick to establish new plantings at Chateau Tahbilk in 1949, today they are some of Victoria's oldest productive Cabernet Sauvignon vines. Having barely scraped through the ravages of phyloxera and a period of disrepute, the fortunes of Tahbilk were turned around by Purbrick who was the first to market Australian wine under its varietal name.

Reillys Barking Mad Sauvignon Blanc CONFIRM VINTAGE

Sauvignon Blanc Adelaide + Clare South Australia
A frivolously labelled Sauvignon Blanc by an otherwise serious winery, Barking Mad has already created quite a name and following for itself. Designed to bring the sanity back into one's life, parcels of crisply flavoured grapes are sourced from low yielding vines in Adelaide Hills and Valley Clare. But Barking Mad? Some say it was inspired by Tessa the vineyard hound. Some claim it's about the winemaker's demeanour. Others suggest it relates to the price point for such a high quality wine. Whatever the reason we know you will enjoy Barking Mad.

Reillys know about quality fruit. Harvests of Sauvignon Blanc from the Reilly estate vineyards at Leasingham and St Clare Vines are vinified alongside parcels grown to the cooler elevated, slow ripening altitudes of Adelaide Hills. Vines are all closely husbanded and mature to an average age of ten years, fasidiously cropped to yield a lean 2.0T/acre. Grapes are either hand picked or harvested throughout the cool of night, to capture the aromatic varietal fruit characters and bracing natural acidity. Following the press and a cold settle, the purest, exclusively free run juices are inoculated and treated to a brisk, temperature controlled vinification before an early bottling to retain vitality and freshness.
Light pale straw with lime hues. Nose of cut grass, stonefruit and citrus, persimmons and snow pea. Fresh, crisp and herbaceous, persistence of gooseberry characters and ripe tropical fruit flavours, a subtle hint of spice rounds out the palate, which is perfectly balanced and finishes dry. Barking Mad is best enjoyed slightly chilled.
