About This Wine:

The Keyneton Euphonium Retrospective Twin Pack contains two museum releases of this shiraz cabernet blend and is the perfect wine pairing for your festive lunch or dinner. The 2010 and 2015 Keyneton Euphonium vintages are rated 'Excellent' and ‘Exceptional’ respectively, by winemaker Stephen Henschke, and reveal vibrant notes of mulberry and forest fruits, with more subtle hints of cedar, clove and anise, and a smooth and lingering finish. Enjoy the beauty in comparing these two special vintages...

The 2010 Vintage is a blend of 70% shiraz, 18% cabernet sauvignon and 12% merlot grown in the Barossa (Eden Valley and Barossa Valley regions). Matured in 15% new and 85% seasoned French and American oak hogsheads for 18 months prior to blending and bottling. Bottle aged in the Henschke cellar for museum release. 

Deep red, with deep crimson-red hues. A complex melange of bramble fruit, blueberry, Satsuma plum and cranberry aromas, revealing notes of violet, liquorice, cassis and bay leaf and hints of development with leather, star anise, cumin and cedar. A structural palate of rich red fruits, with complex layers of spicy black currant and crushed herbs, driven by a refined acid line and velvety tannins. Showing great purity in its development. Drink now to 2030.

This has come on well since seven years ago. Typical regional raspberry, and spicy/vegetal bouquet, laced with dried herbs including thyme and oregano. Medium bodied, soft, supple; drinking very well now. Lovely wine, elegant and drinking in its prime. - Huon Hooke, The Real Review, 93 Points.

The 2015 Vintage is a blend of 66% shiraz, 19% cabernet sauvignon, 10% merlot, 5% cabernet franc grown in the Barossa (Eden Valley and Barossa Valley regions). Matured in 20% new and 80% seasoned French oak hogsheads for 18 months prior to blending and bottling. Bottle aged in the Henschke cellar for museum release.

Deep crimson with garnet hues. Enticing aromas of blackcurrant, blackberry and cassis are enveloped by herbal notes of sage and bay leaf that lead to subtle nuances of red fruits, black pepper, vanilla and cedar. A generous palate offers rich flavours of red and blackcurrant, dried herbs and black pepper, with great purity, balance and texture forming a delicious mouthfeel, while velvety tannins provide great length and complexity. Drink now til 2035.

A blend of 66% shiraz, 19% cabernet sauvignon, 10% merlot and 5% cabernet franc matured in French hogsheads (20% new) for 18 months, the grapes picked over 2 months. It's a fragrant, elegant wine, the fruit flavours akin to piano keys, a fine web of tannins and oak completing the picture. - James Halliday, Wine Companion, 95 Points.
