“Lift and richness but admirable subtlety…the best value of these new releases.” – Jancis Robinson
Keyneton Euphonium is a beautiful composition of shiraz from up to 50-year-old vines growing in the Eden and Barossa Valleys, blended with cabernet sauvignon, merlot and cabernet franc from selected vineyards in both regions.

"This is a spectacular Euphonium with the most detail and exuberance I have seen from this label. I am a committed fan of The Great Australian Red blend and while this wine hides some Merlot and Cab Franc in the mix, to great effect, this is a mighty release and a wine that offers a true sense of Australian vinous history at the same time as rewarding you with incredible value for money. If you want to experience the Henschke magic, with TGAR heritage, while embracing a fabulous vintage and a fairly forward disposition, this is IT!" 18.5 pts, Matthew Jukes

"Transparent garnet with lots of shading. Very pleasing, evolved nose with no single varietal element dominating. The 2015 was a wine of the week. This is also very winning indeed. Very much in the Henschke style with lift and richness but admirable subtlety. Real refreshment value with a suggestion of Australia's eucalyptus character and a real vibration on the end. Not the most concentrated wine but so what? Hint of oyster shells on the nose. Just a little heat on the end but this is surely going to be the best value of these new releases." 16.5 pts, Jancis Robinson

"A sumptuous, savoury twist on classic Shiraz-Cabernet blends, full of rich, velvety cassis fruit, dark chocolate, cured black olive and dried herbs. Splashes of Merlot and Cabernet Franc bring accents of blueberry, spicy fruitcake, tea, tomato plant and ketchup. A fretwork of tannins and juicy acidity makes for a dynamic interplay of flavours and textures, concluding with Cabernet Sauvignon's gravel, grip and focus. A full-bodied, flavoursome feast." 93 pts, Sarah Ahmed, Decanter

"A blend of Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc, the 2016 Keyneton Euphonium beautifully marries the mint and herb of the Bordeaux varieties with the plumminess and spice of the Shiraz. Hints of mint, tea and violets accent dark, plummy fruit, then finish with savoury overtones of black olive. It's full-bodied and supple, ready to drink now or age 15 or more years." 93 pts, Joe Czerwinski, WA
