Winemaker Notes

Dark garnet red with violet hues. Intense aromas of blackberry, ripe mulberry and spiced satsuma plum with a hint of cassis. The palate is rich and complex with juicy ripe plum and red currant fruits while the savory, fine, layered tannins provide a long and velvety finish.

Blend: 62% Shiraz, 23% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JH 94
Australian Wine Companion
Deep garnet, bright; a decidedly savoury bouquet showing cedar, olive, hoi sin and bramble; medium-bodied and showing a little toasty oak on the palate, the fresh acidity and minerally complexity provides a long and harmonious conclusion. Shiraz/Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot/Cabernet Franc.
RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Blended of 62% shiraz, 23% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot and 7% Cabernet Franc, the 2009 Keyneton Euphonium has a deep garnet-purple color and is scented of warm plums, creme de cassis and blueberries over toast, salami, baking spices and tar. Medium to full bodied with rich, mouth-filling fruit, it has a great backbone of crisp acid, medium to firm finely grained tannins, and finishes long. Still taut in the mouth, it should drink best 2013 to 2020+.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
Medium-weight, with focused red plum and spice flavors, finishing with a gentle crescendo that picks up strength with each sip. Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc.

Henschke, Barossa Valley, Barossa, Australia
Image of winery
The Henschke family have been making wine since Johann Christian Henschke planted a small vineyard at Keyneton in Eden Valley in 1862. Cyril Henschke pioneered varietal and single-vineyard wines, including the world-famous Shiraz wines, Hill of Grace and Mount Edelstone in the 1950s. Fifth-generation Stephen Henschke and his wife Prue are one of the most lauded winemaking teams in the world, and international awards recognize the complementary nature of their roles, Stephen as winemaker and Prue as viticulturist. To protect their vineyards for future generations they have implemented an inspiring nursery program to preserve the genetic heritage of their oldest pre-phylloxera vines as well as continuing to lead the way with organic and biodynamic principals to enrich their land.

Barossa Valley

View all wine

Historically and presently the most important wine-producing region of Australia, the Barossa Valley is set in South Australia, where more than half of the country’s wine is made. Because the climate is very hot and dry, vineyard managers must be careful so that grapes do not become overripe.

The intense heat is ideal for plush, bold reds, particularly Rhône blends featuring Shiraz, Grenache, and Mataro (Mourvèdre). White grapes can produce crisp, fresh wines from Riesling, Chardonnay, and Semillon if they are planted at higher altitudes.

Most of Australia’s largest wine producers are based here and Shiraz plantings date back as far as 1860. Many of them are dry farmed and bush trained, still offering less than one ton per acre of inky, purple juice.

Other Red Blends

View all wine

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to create complex wines with many different layers of flavors and aromas, or to create more balanced wines. For example, a variety that is soft and full-bodied may be combined with one that is lighter with naturally high acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
