2010 KEYNETON, 'Euphonium', Henschke. Barossa, South Australia

Organic

Bin: 592
Alcohol Percentage: 14%
Area: This comes from vineyards in both the Barossa and the (higher and cooler) Eden Valley; from vines up to 50 years old.
Grape Variety: 65% Shiraz, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc, matured for 18 months in oak (15% new oak, mainly French but also 10% American)
Producer: The Henschke family settled in the Barossa in 1861 and now fifth-generation Stephen Henschke and his wife Prue uphold the family name and reputation, as winemaker and viticulturist respectively. Famous above all for the 'Hill of Grace', this is one of the most respected estates in Australia. All their vineyards are both organic and biodynamic.
The musical reference is to the Henschke Family Band, founded in 1888 by Paul Gotthard Henschke, which featured various wind instruments including a B flat euphonium.
Old Bridge Rating: One of Henschke's less expensive reds, but in no sense 'light'. It's rich, hedonistically so, but very well balanced.
