62/24/11/3 shiraz/cabernet sauvignon/cabernet franc/merlot. Matured 18 months in (19% new) seasoned 85/15% French/American oak hogsheads. I love the transparency of the Barossa's cooler seasons, in such articulate detail here that all 4 varieties are clearly visible in all their glory. Unashamedly medium bodied, refreshing and enticing, yet in no way underpowered, simplistic or short lived. Crunchy berry fruits, fine-ground tannins and vibrant acidity unite to marvellous effect and outstanding line and length. It takes some skill, dexterity and humility in the winery to allow fruit of such elegance to really sing. A classic Barossa blend with a long future before it.
Very good deep red colour with a good purple tint. The bouquet is sweetly raspberry-ish and very Eden Valley in style, earthy-spicy also, with a bouquet of dried herbs and dried flowers, especially sage. The wine is deliciously fruit-sweet and almost lush in the mouth, the masses of fine, subtly drying tannins keeping the finish and aftertaste neat and disciplined. A lovely wine, approachable already but certainly built to last and will be better if you can keep your hands off it a few years.
I am particularly partial to Keyneton Euphonium, and it is a genuinely noble creation in 2017. The 2017 is a tighter, more structured style than the expansive 2016, and yet I like it enormously for very different reasons. There is no need for this blend to load muscle and weight on the palate, even though many wines do just this. Imagine, if you will, a KE sporting a perfectly tailored three-piece suit, broad across the shoulders and nipped in at the waist – this is the silhouette of 2017 Euphonium. Elegant, controlled and suave, this is a perfumed wine with a gorgeous, smoky, red-fruited feel. The acidity is mouth-watering, making this intense red wine feel refreshing and savoury. I am extremely impressed and if you consider the diminutive price tag, this is a work of genius. While I appreciate that it could not be more different in delivery than the mighty 2016, I find its balance and elegance exceptionally alluring. You could indeed open a bottle today and enjoy the flavours from the off, but there is a rigidity and poise here buried in its core that will enable this wine to mellow for a good ten to fifteen years.
Henschke is one of Australia's most renowned and respected wineries producing one of the country’s most iconic single-vineyard wines, the Hill of Grace. Founded in the 1860s by Johann Christian Henschke, the winery has been passed down through six generations of the Henschke family, who have dedicated themselves to preserving the rich winemaking traditions of their forebears while incorporating the latest innovations in winemaking techniques. The estate is now run by husband and wife Stephen and Prue Henschke who are the winemaker and viticulturist, respectively.
The winery's flagship wine, Hill of Grace, is one of the most highly sought-after Shiraz wines in the world and is made from vines that are 155 years old. The wine is a true expression of the Eden Valley terroir, and is renowned for its trademark elegance, complexity, depth, and balance. The wine is tightly allocated and highly sought after.
In addition to Hill of Grace, Henschke produces a range of other high-quality wines, including the Keyneton Euphonium, a classic Barossa blend of Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Merlot. This wine showcases the beauty of blending, with each of the four grape varieties clearly visible in all their glory. The Henschke Mount Edelstone, on the other hand, is a pure Shiraz made from vines that date back to 1912. This single-vineyard wine has been produced since 1952 and is considered one of Australia's hallmark single-vineyard wines, known for its kaleidoscope of complexities.
