Tasting Notes

The 2017 Keyneton Euphonium is 62% Shiraz, 24% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Cabernet Franc and 3% Merlot, aged in 19% new oak hogsheads (85% French, 15% American). The oak imparts a bit of smokiness and mocha overtones to the nose, but this is a largely fruit-driven effort, with ripe cherries, boysenberries and blackberries touched with hints of eucalyptus and sage. It's medium to full-bodied, smooth and streamlined on the palate, with a soft dusting of tannins and lingering berry and herb flavors on the finish.

Score: 91

With a splash of Cabernet Franc and Merlot, Henschke’s twist on a classic Aussie Shiraz-Cabernet has no shortage of interest and layers to its fresh black berry and plum flavours. Riffs of blackcurrant bud, black pepper, black olive, fennel, cedar and sandalwood and a neat touch of charred nutty oak bring delicious savoury nuance. Emphatic but elegant acidity and fine, slippery tannins make for an involving, energetic palate.

Score: 93
