Description

Henschke is a critically well-regarded wine estate based in the Eden Valley town of Keyneton, South Australia. The winery produces a range of wines from the Eden Valley and surrounding subregions, including Barossa and Adelaide Hills. Henschke is best known for its intense, full-bodied flagship wine, Hill of Grace, made from Shiraz vines up to 150 years old. It is one of the most expensive – and sought-after – wines to be made in Australia.

Founded in 1862 by Silesian immigrants, Henschke is one of the oldest wine producers in Australia and remains under the ownership of the family. Winemaker Stephen Henschke, educated at the Geisenheim Institute in Germany, and his viticulturist wife Prue are generally considered to be among the leading wine authorities in the country.

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

Keyneton Euphonium is composed of Shiraz sourced 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. The 2019 vintage is made up of 52% Shiraz, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Cabernet Franc and 11% Merlot matured in a mixture of 80% French and 20% American oak hogsheads of which 17% were new for a period of 18 months.

Very attractive with powerful fresh dark plum, blackcurrant, chocolate, dark cherry, with roasted chestnut savoury notes. Blackberry pastille, musky plum, coffee grounds oak and firm tannins. Finishes minerally, long and well-balanced. Still quite elemental but with beautiful fruit definition.

Dark, inky and opaque in the glass. Really juicy, dark fruited aromas of plum conserve, blackcurrant pastilles, sweet spice and mocha, there's a lift of violets in there as well. Full flavoured, ripe and opulent, there's a richness of dark fruit flavours here, plum, mulberry, blackberry and a touch of choc mint. Firm, textured tannins and lively acidity temper the plush fruit and provide mouth-feel and cut. Smart gear

Tasting Profile

Nose
Totally opaque midnight black heart with a deep dark red black tinged hue. Delightful spicy dark plum, blackcurrant and liquorice aromas flood the nostrils with hints of rhubarb, dried herbs and vanillin cedar also present.
Palate
Silky smooth and highly delectable, the medium bodied palate is decorated with plush dark plum, liquorice and blackcurrant fruits which meld into a dark chocolate, dried herb, cedary tobacco character and vanillin spice back drop. Perfectly integrated cashmere like tannin structure concluding long, polished and seductive.
