Henschke 'Keyneton Euphonium', Brossa and Eden Valley, Australia, 2015
Grape: Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc
The Shiraz Cabernet blend may not be exclusive to Australia, but it has certainly never been bettered elsewhere. Need proof? Exhibit 1 – ‘Keyneton Euphonium’. Blackberry, cassis, cedar, bay leaf, black pepper, sage, violet, and that’s just the nose. Complex, expressive and plush, it is intensely flavoured and wonderfully smooth.
Pairs well with steak, grilled meats, cheese
"Oak-aged Shiraz-Cabernet from an iconic Barossa producer: velvety, plush and hugely complex, with lovely herbal twists making it very gastronomic. One to savour with hard, salty cheeses."
