Henschke 2016 Keyneton Euphonium
The village of Keyneton, pioneered by pastoralist Joseph Keynes in 1842, was home to the Henschke Family Brass Band, which was founded in 1888 by Paul Gotthard Henschke and later led by Stephen’s grandfather, Paul Alfred. Among the instruments was a large B flat euphonium, from which the wine takes its name. It is an elegant blend based on up to 50 year old shiraz blended with cabernet sauvignon, merlot and cabernet franc planted by Cyril Henschke at Eden Valley in the 1960s.
This is 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.
