Produced from a blend of 70% Shiraz, 18% Cabernet Sauvignon and 12% Merlot with maturation taking place in a combination of 15% new and 85% seasoned French and American oak hogsheads for a period of 18 months.

Totally opaque black crimson red colour with deep dark crimson red purple hue. Perfumed aromas of blackberry, ripe blackcurrant and liquorice intermingle followed by some dark chocolate and vanillin confectionary. Silky smooth and seductive the palate is filled with plushly textured waves of ripe blackberry and dark chocolate followed by a touch of liquorice, some well concealed vanillin oak and spice. Velvet smooth tannins. Long ripe blackberry, dark chocolate, liquorice and spicy vanillin oak aftertaste.

Other Reviews....
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. Drink it now to 2020+.
