Henschke Keyneton Euphonium 2014

Australia, SA, Eden Valley

"57% shiraz, 26% cabernet sauvignon, 12% merlot, 5% cabernet franc, 53% from the Eden Valley, 47% from the Barossa Valley, matured in 92% French and 8% American hogsheads for 18 months. A quixotic blend at the best of times and will always bring logistical complexities into play, complicated further by the trial and tribulations of '14. It is complex, savoury and minty, and carries the Henschke stamp of authenticity."

James Halliday Wine Companion, August 2017

"Very deep crimson with red hue. Alluring and spicy aromas of red currant, Satsuma plum, red liquorice and black pepper with herbaceous layers of bramble, sage and rosemary. Concentrated and elegant flavours of succulent red currant and blue berry fruits are balanced with black pepper and a hint of violet florals, while a clean line of acidity and fine-grained tannins add length and texture."
