2003 Henschke Keyneton Estate "Euphonium" Barossa Red

SKU #1046204

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, Jul/Aug 06: "($45; a blend of shiraz, cabernet sauvignon, merlot and cabernet franc) Deep ruby. Potent red and dark berries on the nose, with exotic notes of fruitcake, molasses, anise and dark chocolate. Smoky, musky tobacco and cured meat notes accent brooding, sweet blackberry and blackcurrant flavors, with a deeper espresso suggestion on the back. Quite ripe and rich, with a chewy texture and firm tannins on the finish. This has fruit to spare, the dark berry flavors showing excellent length and breadth."

Australia

- 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 wine regions are in the southeastern area of the continent, including Barossa Valley, Clare Valley, McLaren Vale, and Coonawarra in South Australia; Yarra Yarra Valley 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 and Sauvignon Blanc from the land Down Under, where Riesling also enjoys international acclaim. 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.
