Henschke Keyneton Euphonium 2016


A Barossa Bordeaux-ish blend of shiraz, cabernet sauvignon, merlot and cabernet franc. Black and purples plus an intriguing nose with cigar box notes, some smoky campfire characters, dry herbs, barbecued meats, dark chocolate, coffee grinds and even some red apple touches. Still quite youthful, it finishes with some pleasing sour cherry flavours, dark berries and more chocolate. This has slightly more chewy tannins than did the Johann’s Garden. It also has decent length and years ahead of it. Should be improved by another five to eight years under its belt.
