2009 Henschke Keyneton Euphonium Dry Red
A blend of 63% Shiraz, 23% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot and 7% Cabernet Franc that was matured in a combination of 15% new and 85% seasoned French & American hogsheads.
Opaque black dark crimson red colour with deep purple crimson red hue. The nose displays scents of blackberry and blackcurrant followed by some spicy cedar and a touch of liquorice. Full bodied the palate possesses plenty of Barossa richness but at the same time is relatively elegantly constructed. Filled with velvety textured fruit, ripe blackberry, blackcurrant and dark chocolate flavours are followed by some liquorice and spicy vanillin earth like characters. Velvet smooth tannins with long aftertaste of blackcurrant, blackberry, dark chocolate and spicy cedar.
Cellar 5-6 years (2017-2018).
