Henschke Keyneton Euphonium Shiraz 2017


| /

The Wine

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. The Barossa hills village of Keyneton, pioneered by pastoralist Joseph Keynes in 1842, was a musical and cultural focus for the early settlers, and home to the Henschke Family Brass Band and Henschke winery.

The Review

"It certainly tastes like a Henschke Eden Valley red, with tell - tale raspberry and sage among various dried - herb and spice aromas, floral and earthy nuances too. It’s deliciously fruit - sweet, almost lush in the mouth, the masses of fine, subtly drying tannins keeping the finish and aftertaste neat and disciplined. A lovely wine, approachable already but certainly bui lt to last and will be reward even a few years in the cellar." 95Pts, Huon Hooke, The Real Review, 21 June 2021
