There are four tiny patches of vine at Scotchman's Hill, which have been mollycoddled by Robin Brockett, since the start of his tenure as chief winemaker in the 1980s. Excruciatingly limited after a strict pruning and rigorous sorting of fruit, they each yield a mere hundred cases of wine. Brockett has set aside the precious harvests of these superior blocks for his own label, a personal project to hand craft the finest of vintage, an exclusive range of the Bellarine's most elite single vineyard efforts. So besotted is Brockett by the spectacular quality of fruit from these four regal parcels, he has imported two 800 Litre Tuscan vinification Amphora from the.. Brockett begets the best of bellarine»
The mean gravelly soils and invigorating climes of Mount Barker of the Australian southwest, were identified during the 1960s by the world's leading viticulturalists, as a place uncannily similar to the great terroirs and clime of Bordeaux. The pioneering vines of Forest Hill were the first ever planted here, sired from rootstock of ancient Houghton clones, inaugurally vintaged by the illustrious Jack Mann in 1972. The Cabernet and Riesling of Forest Hill were promptly distinguished by multiple trophy victories and praised by gentleman James Halliday as the most remarkable wines to come out of the Australian west. Forest Hill have remained a source of the most.. Softly spoken wonders from the west»

Henschke Keyneton Estate Euphonium CONFIRM VINTAGE

Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz Merlot Cabernet Franc Barossa Eden South Australia
Johann Christian Henschke purchased land around the tiny village of Keyneton in 1861 after fleeing religious persecution in Silesia. Keyneton grew to become a cultural focus for early Barossa settlers, not least of all was the Henschke Family Brass Band! The B flat euphonium, imported to Australia from Leipzig in the late nineteenth century by musical entrepreneur Carl Engel of Adelaide, was the Henschke favourite. Just like the namesake Henschke wine, a euphonium exhibits warmer and more subtle tonal qualities than it's louder modern counterparts.
Available in cartons of six
Case of 6

Named after the early English pioneer Joseph Keynes who settled at Keyneton in 1842. Cyril Henschke established a large planting of predominantly Riesling and Shiraz at Keyneton during a time when riesling was scarce and bonuses were being paid by the large wineries. Today the Shiraz from Keyneton is reserved for Euphonium. A mostly Shiraz wine with smaller components of Merlot, Cabernet and Cabernet Franc, grown to the Eden and Barossa Valleys, vinified at the Henschke Road wineworks at Keyneton into a soft, easy to enjoy wine. Components are treated to eighteen months maturation in a combination of new and prior use French and American oak hogsheads.
Very deep crimson in colour. A complex bouquet of plums, blackberries, mulberry and cassis with savoury nuances of tar and roasted meats. The sweet, rich and plush palate has a fleshy texture with great depth flavour and concentration, beautifully balanced by velvety grained tannins and excellent length.
