Henschke Keyneton Euphonium

Variety: 57% Shiraz 30% Cabernet Sauvignon 7% Merlot 6% Cabernet Franc
Region: Eden Valley | Barossa Valley
Vintage: 2016

Keyneton Euphonium is a beautiful composition of Shiraz from up to 50-year-old vines growing in the Eden and Barossa Valleys, blended with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc from selected vineyards in both regions. Deep crimson with bright crimson hues. Intense aromas of ripe, spicy red currant, Satsuma plum, rhubarb, boysenberry and blackberry with lifted hints of cassis, violets, sage, bay leaf, black pepper, baking spices and cedar. The palate has excellent depth and structure with plush, ripe dark fruits and a balanced acid line driving the mid-palate long and finishing with savoury spice and dried herbs in unison with the elegant, fine-grained tannins. Matured in 13% new and 87% seasoned French (71%) and American (29%) oak hogsheads for 18 months prior to blending and bottling.  

Awards:
Joe Czerwinski Robert Parker Wine Advocate. 

"2016 Keyneton Euphonium beautifully marries the mint and herb of the Bordeaux varieties with the plumminess and spice of the Shiraz. Hints of mint, tea and violets accent dark, plummy fruit, then finish with savory overtones of black olive. It’s full-bodied and supple..." 93 points.

James Halliday,  Halliday Wine Companion

"The bouquet does indeed bellow from the glass like that a Euphonium. It has a swag of red, black and purple fruits all in tune, something very different for drinking now." 95 points

Maryann Worobiec Wine Spectator 

"Complex and aromatic, this red offers black tea, dark chocolate, crushed pine needles and licorice-laced blackberry and plum flavors that are refined and polished, with velvety tannins and a touch of cocoa powder on the finish. Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc." 91 points.
