Henschke Keyneton Estate Euphonium 375ml CONFIRM VINTAGE

Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot Cabernet Franc Barossa Eden South Australia
Excellent Langtons Classification. Keyneton Vineyard is named after English pioneer Joseph Keynes who settled atop the Mt Lofty ranges and established a village in 1842. Cyril Henschke purchased the property in 1966 and sowed the land to vines at a time when Riesling was the wine of choice and bonuses were being paid by the large wineries. He also had the foresight to plant Shiraz, the source of fruit for Keyneton Estate Euphonium, vines are now over forty years of age and yielding some of the Eden Valley's finest red wine.
Johann Christian Henschke planted a small vineyard and an orchard, releasing his first commercial vintage in 1868, believed to be principally riesling and shiraz. In the 1960s Cyril Henschke established a large planting in the Eden Valley which today is the source of Shiraz fruit which forms the backbone of Keyneton Euphonium. A mostly Shiraz wine with smaller components of Merlot, Cabernet and Cabernet Franc, grown to the Eden and Barossa Valleys is vinified at the Henschke Road wineworks at Keyneton into a soft, easy to enjoy wine. Components are treated to maturation in a combination of new and prior use French and American oak hogsheads for eighteen months.
