2017 Henschke, `Keyneton Euphonium` Barossa Shiraz/Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot/Cabernet Franc

Original price was: £42.75.Current price is: £32.95. inc. VAT

One of the stand out wines in Henschke’s range for value. The old vines give it layers of complexity and depth, combined with concentrated black fruits and spice.

Henschke is recognised for its rich heritage, innovative spirit and commitment to handcrafting exceptional wines for over 150 years. The family’s grape growing winemaking traditions spans six generations from sustainably grown vineyards in the Eden Valley, Barossa Valley and Adelaide Hills. Fifth-generation winemaker Stephen Henschke took over running the winery in 1979 and together with his viticulturist wife, Prue, they have taken their two single vineyards, Hill of Grace and Mount Edelstone, and transformed them into two of Australia’s most sought-after wines.

Shiraz (57%), Cabernet Sauvignon (30%), Merlot (7%) and Cabernet Franc (6%) grapes were hand harvested, and each parcel was picked separately and remained so throughout the vinification process. Once in the winery, the grapes were destemmed and lightly crushed, either into small, concrete, open-top fermenters, or small, stainless steel open-top fermenters. After 7-10 days and just prior to reaching dryness, the primary fermentation was then finished in 71% French and 29% American oak (13% new and 87% seasoned) hogshead barrels. The wine matured for 18 months before bottling, with the wine remaining in bottle for two years before its release.

Deep crimson with bright carmine hues, this wine has intense aromas of spicy redcurrant, plum, rhubarb and blackberry with lifted hints of cassis, violets, sage, bay leaf, black pepper and cedar. On the palate there is excellent depth and structure with plush, ripe dark fruits and a balanced acidity, finishing with savoury spice and dried herbs in unison with the elegant, fine-grained tannins.
