2013 Henschke Keyneton Euphonium Shiraz Cabernet Merlot Barossa Valley Shiraz
The mere mention of the name Henschke sends shivers of excitement down the spines of many wine enthusiasts. They are know for top quality wines, and this one from a great vintage is top notch. Smells of cassis, plums, black olives and toastiness rise up to tempt the senses, whilst the palate is elegant and medium-bodied, with a plummy heart, fine-grained tannins, and a dry, smooth, lingering finish. Lovely stuff!
Deep crimson in colour. An intense nose of ripe mulberry, plum, blue and black berry fruits and anise gives way to underlying floral violet notes and hints of cassis, sage and pepper spice. The beautifully balanced palate shows layers of sweet, concentrated fruit and texture, with fine-grained tannins for a long and elegant finish.
