Henschke's Keyneton Euphonium is a beautiful composition of Shiraz from up to 50-year-old vines grown in the Eden and Barossa Valleys. This is blended with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc from selected vineyards in both regions; some of which were planted by Cyril Henschke back in the 1960's.
The 2019 Henschke Keyneton Euphonium delivers a wonderful rendition of this hugely popular wine. The nose offers 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.
"94 Points. 52/25/12/11% shiraz/ cabernet sauvignon/ cabernet franc/ merlot grown in the Eden and Barossa valleys, matured in 80/20% French and American oak (17% new) for 18 months. Deep crimson. Blackcurrant, blood plum and blackberry fruits with hints of baking spices, vanillin, tobacco leaf, cedar, licorice and stone. Fine tannin grip with lots of detail and a sense of suppleness to its form, concentrated yet showing restraint and elegance as the wine slowly fades."- Dave Brookes, Halliday Wine Companion 2024.Shiraz, cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc and merlot. Full-weighted, juicy and sweet upon entry, showcasing riffs on boysenberry coulis, blackcurrant, redder fruits, menthol, violet and sage. The flavors rumble along nicely, compressed by a soft nudge of tannin, grape and well-appointed oak, frisky and chalky of feel. This is a delicious wine. Its sassy immediacy belies a structural prowess, auguring for mid-term cellaring. Drink or hold. Screw cap."- Ned Goodwin, jamessuckling.com, 5 July, 2023.
