2009 Henschke "Keyneton Estate Euphonium" Red Blend Eden Valley South Australia

SKU #1115375 94 points James Halliday

 Deep garnet, bright; a decidedly savoury bouquet showing cedar, olive, hoi sin and bramble; medium-bodied and showing a little toasty oak on the palate, the fresh acidity and minerally complexity provides a long and harmonious conclusion.  (2/ 2012)

92 points James Suckling

 A balanced and delicious wine with soft and velvety tannins and a chocolate, dark fruit and coffee character. Full-bodied, lovely finish. Balanced.  (8/ 2012)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Blended of 62% Shiraz, 23% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot and 7% Cabernet Franc, the 2009 Keyneton Euphonium has a deep garnet-purple color and is scented of warm plums, creme de cassis and blueberries over toast, salami, baking spices and tar. Medium to full bodied with rich, mouth-filling fruit, it has a great backbone of crisp acid, medium to firm finely grained tannins, and finishes long. Still taut in the mouth, it should drink best 2013 to 2020+.  (2/ 2012)

- While it is true that the greatest strides in Australian winemaking have come in the last 30 years or so, commercial viticulture began as early as the 1820s and has developed uninterrupted ever since. The majority of the great Region are in the southeastern area of the continent, with the Barossa Valley, Claire Valley, McLaren Vale, and Coonawarra in South Australia, the Yarra Yarra Velley and Pyrenees in Victoria and the Upper and Lower Hunter Valleys in New South Wales. Many of the wines from Southeastern Australia are based on Shiraz or Cabernet Sauvignon and various blends including Grenache and Mourvedre. In Western Australia, along the Margaret River, great strides are being made with Pinot Noir as well as Bordeaux-styled reds. There are also many world-class releases of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Riesling from the land Down Under. While many equate Aussie wines with "value", there are more than a few extremely rare and pricey options, which never fail to earn the highest ratings from wine publications and critics throughout the world.
