Hoddles Creek was planned and developed from day one, with a view to crafting an artful range of superlative Yarra Valley wines.

Returned servicemen from the Great War could look forward to government grants of pastoral freehold. West Australia's Willyabrup Valley was such a place, just a short walk from the balmy beaches of Indian Ocean, it offered the veterans excellent potential for agriculture. The fertile lands of Sussex Vale were originally established to animal husbandry by the discharged troopers, generations of livestock enriched the soils and it was astutely sown to vines in 1973.

Constructed during early settlement by a supervisor of colonial convicts, at the very epicentre of the market gardens which serviced Hobart, Clarence House is a heritage listed manor which remains largely unaltered since the 1830s. It passed through several hands before being acquired by the Kilpatricks in 1993, who answered the call of Bacchus and established the grounds to vine. There are now sixteen hectares of viticulture, several significant Burgundy clones of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, with smaller plantings of Sauvignon and Pinot Blanc, Merlot, Cabernet and Tempranillo.

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.

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.
