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.

The Country

Australia

Australia

The UK is Australia's largest market by volume and second only to France in terms of countries in this market. There is no denying that the British love affair, which began in the 1980s, still continues. However, still the vast majority of what we see here, 85%, is bulk shipped. The nation struggles to celebrate its best wines and producers.

At Noble Grape we seek out the best that the Australia can offer and shout its regional diversity from the rooftops. Dowie Doole from McLaren Vale is one of the stars of our range. One of James Halliday's 5-star wineries, and offers incredible value for money.

Henschke is one of Australia's Crown Jewels. Now in their 6th generation of the Henschke family, the estate is most known for its old vines Shirazs from Eden Valley, culminating with Hill of Grace, one of the world's finest wines made from this variety.

Cool climate is all the rage now, and we have been seeking out delicious examples from Coonawarra, Yarra Valley and elsewhere. These wines smash the notion that Oz is all about big, jammy, alcoholic wines, bringing a degree of refreshment and sense of terroir.

The Producer

Henschke

Henschke

Henschke's heritage dates back to the 1860s as the proprietors of some of the country's oldest Shiraz vines, and has been revered for many decades for its single-vineyard wines, the most famous of all being Hill of Grace - a legendary wine which starts the pulses racing of wine lovers and collectors across the world. The winery is now under the stewardship of its sixth generation of the Henschke family, and since 1868 when the first wine under the Henschke name was produced, they have never been anywhere but at the top tier of Australian wines.
