Barossa Valley Estate Spires Shiraz Cabernet

Expert Reviews

Max Allen & Peter Forrestal (2002 Vintage) says
Barossa Valley Estate began as a co-operative of local growers - something surprisingly rare in Australia but much more commonplace in Europe. It is now half owned by the Hardy Wine Group and boasts a slick, new winery and adjacent cellar door at Marananga in the Barossa Valley. Although it has been consistently good and featured in each issue of Quaff, this is the best vintage of Spires that we've seen. In a wine that sells for less than $10, it is rare to find the depth of concentrated dark berry fruit that we have here. Deep, rich and concentrated, fleshy and firm (though well-balanced). Delicious.

Max Allen & Peter Forrestal (2000 Vintage) says
This is the entry level red from the Barossa cooperative now half-owned by BRL Hardy. Winemaker Natasha Mooney has produced a pleasant, easy-drinking Barossa Valley shiraz cabernet blend that has lively, red cherry flavours and finishes fresh and clean. Reasonable value.

Max Allen & Peter Forrestal (1999 Vintage) says
The Spires range is a relatively new line-up from BRL Hardy focussing on the flavours and wine styles of the Barossa Valley. While not, perhaps, as full-on Barossa in style as we may have liked (in other words, it could have had a bit more depth and grunt), it's still a very attractive, bright, berry-fruity red wine with a highly gluggable juiciness.
