The acclaimed Henschke family, foundation members of Australia’s First Families of Wine, arrived in South Australia in 1841 after Johann Christian Henschke migrated from Silesia (Germany). Each generation has contributed to the legend with fourth generation Cyril Henschke pioneering varietal, single-vineyard wines in the 1950's, most famously Mount Edelstone and Hill of Grace Shiraz.
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 at his Eden Valley property in the 1960's.
"94 Points. Henschke’s Euphonium is a (66%) shiraz-based red with inputs from (19%) cabernet sauvignon, (10%) merlot and (5%) cabernet franc. The cabernet influence is clear. It sets the wine on a clear quality course; plum and blackcurrant flavours pour through bay leaves, dust and dried herbs, cedary oak tying it together. Tannin comes in fine sheets, and the aftertaste lingers appreciably. Excellent release. “A vintage like 2015 highlights how well these varieties work together,” Stephen Henschke notes. Gold medal quality in a canter. Tasted: May19. 14% alc. $60"- Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front.
“94 Points. A magnificent union between the spicy dark berries of Shiraz and the capsicum, leaf and fine-boned structure of Cabernet Sauvignon, lifted by the violet aromas of a dash of Cabernet Franc. Wonderful purity of crunchy, dark berry fruit depth is framed in impeccable, firm, fine tannins that promise a grand future. It exemplifies Stephen Henschke’s notion of what he dubs the “Super Barossan” blend.” - Tyson Stelzer, WBM Magazine, June 2019.
Fifth Generation winemaker Stephen and his viticulturist wife Prue have won many awards for their talent, innovation and integration of vineyard and winery. They lead the way with biodynamic and organic principles. Henschke wines are hand crafted and deeply personal, reflecting the unique terroir of vineyards: the wine names tell either a personal story of the family or the cultural history of their region.
