"A blend of Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, the medium to deep garnet-purple colored 2010 Keyneton Euphonium opens to pronounced Christmas cake, mulberries and preserved plum aromas highlighted by hints of sandalwood and star anise. Mouth-filling with spiced blackberry preserve flavors framed by a medium to firm level of velvety tannins and balanced acid, it finishes with great length." 92+/100, Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate

“There's a distinctive overtone of black walnut here, adding a note of maturity and complexity to the core of wild strawberry and raspberry flavors, with aromatic details of dried porcino, green tea and spice box. The tannins are taut, firming on the finish and suggesting that time in the cellar will make this even more expressive.” 93/100, Wine Spectator 

The Barossa hills village of Keyneton, pioneered by pastoralist Joseph Keynes in 1842, was a musical and cultural focus for the early settlers, and was home to the Henschke Family Brass Band and the Henschke winery. The Henschke Family Band was founded in 1888 by Paul Gotthard Henschke and later led by third-generation Paul Alfred Henschke, and featured wonderful wind instruments such as a B flat euphonium, cornet and E flat clarinet. The B flat euphonium, a large brass wind instrument, was made by the famous Zimmermann factory in Leipzig, Germany, in the late 19th century. The instruments were imported by musical entrepreneur, Carl Engel of Adelaide in the late 1900s and have been lovingly restored and remain in the Henschke family.

The Henschke estate practises biodynamic farming; "I would like to see the next generation inherit a fertile and sustainable land. Using the principles of biodynamics and organics enables me to create the best environment for plant growth."
