2019 Henschke, Keyneton Euphonium, Barossa 6x75cl

“A rich, deep nose of sweet, ripe plum and blackcurrant, with mocha. The palate is drier – not as ripe or plush as the nose suggests. Although it's just 25% of the blend, the Cabernet Sauvignon... leads with vivid, fresh blackcurrant and cassis notes plus tobacco and graphite undertones. The plum emerges with air and has a certain viscosity, but not the sweetness of jam. Dusty tannins firm up on the finish.” Drink 2024-2039 93 points, Sarah Ahmed, “The 2019 Keyneton Euphonium leads with dried rose petals and pomegranate molasses, sumac, bone broth and salted licorice. In the mouth, the wine has a salty, soy/Lion's Mane character, alongside the cassis and bramble. The wine is lighter and finer than I would expect from this season, and it has a silky flow in the mouth. It has an Italianate character to the wine: it is savory and spicy, with very fine acidity and some floral high notes here. 14.5% alcohol, sealed under screw cap.” Drink 2024-2039 92 points, Erin Larkin, “Full screwcapped bottle 1,233 g. 52% Shiraz, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Cabernet Franc and 11% Merlot grown in the Barossa (Eden Valley and Barossa Valley regions). Harvest 26 February to 16 April. Matured in 17% new and 83% seasoned (80% French, 20% American) oak hogsheads for 18 months prior to blending and bottling. TA 6.1 g/l, pH 3.59. The 2015 was a wine of the week in 2020. Transparent, shaded garnet. Very mellow, well-integrated blend. Very luxuriously textured. Well-judged blend that's already approachable. Blackcurrants, blackberries and sagebrush. Lots of drive and when you taste this, you do wonder where they are going to go next, upwards the price scale. What's wrong with this? Many congratulations to the Henschke family and their growers. Very long. Went beautifully with roast beef.” Drink 2024-2034 17.5 points, Jancis Robinson MW,
