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, cabernet franc and merlot from selected vineyards in both regions. Matured in 17% new and 83% seasoned (80% French, 20% American) oak hogsheads for 18 months prior to blending and bottling.
Deep crimson with a dark ruby core. Fragrant and spicy aromas of blackberry, blueberry, fresh plum, cassis, violets, black pepper, sage and bay leaf with underlying notes of cedar, charcuterie, baking spices and anise. The palate is rich, plush and complex, with layers of dark forest fruits, plum and spicy pepper, balanced by fresh acidity and carried by fine-grained tannins for a long and elegant finish.
