Product Description

Keyneton Euphonium is a blend of shiraz (66%) from up to 50-year-old vines growing in the Eden and Barossa Valleys, blended with cabernet sauvignon (19%), merlot (10%) and cabernet franc (5%) from selected vineyards in both regions.

Why “Euphonium”? Turns out the Henschke Family Band was founded in 1888 and featured a B flat euphonium. This large brass wind instrument, was made in Germany in the late 19th century and imported into Adelaide in the late 1900s and has since been lovingly restored and remains in the Henschke family.

“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.” 94 Points Campbell Mattinson
