The Barossa hills village of Keyneton, pioneered by pastoralist Joseph Keynes in 1842, was a musical and cultural focus for the early settlers, and was home to the Henschke Family Brass Band and the Henschke winery. The Henschke Family Band was founded in 1888 by Paul Gotthard Henschke and later led by third-generation Paul Alfred Henschke, and featured wonderful wind instruments such as a B flat euphonium, cornet and E flat clarinet. The B flat euphonium, a large brass wind instrument, was made by the famous immermann factory in Leipzig, Germany, in the late 19th century. The instruments were imported by musical entrepreneur, Carl Engel of Adelaide in the late 1900s and have been lovingly restored and remain in the Henschke family.

Expert Reviews

A 70/18/12% blend of shiraz, cabernet sauvignon and merlot. Strong crimson-purple; a richly robed and structured blend, with an array of black fruits, plum, spice and a dash of dark chocolate; the oak and tannin contributions are both important, pivotal to the texture, structure and longevity of the wine. Rating 94 - Drink by 2035 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (MAR/2013)

Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2010 Keyneton Euphonium is a blend of 70% Shiraz, 18% Cabernet Sauvignon and 12% Merlot that reveals lovely, crushed blueberry and warm blackberry notes fused with hints of black currant cordial, vanilla, dried Provencal herbs and mint. Medium to full-bodied, it has a concentrated and muscular core supported by a crisp acid line and a firm backbone of grainy tannins throughout the long finish. Approachable now, it will drink to 2021+. Rating 92+, Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW, Wine Advocate (APR/2013)

Frankly, it is irresistible, so don't expect to cellar it. Fresh, fragrant and pure, it has fleshy, velvety texture, blackcurrant pastille and mulberry flavours and lingers lush and long. Money Magazine (JUN/2013)

..... dark and broody fruit, a lift of cedary oak and a lick of spearmint, very structured wine, bright berry profile with grainy tannins and good length of concentration. www.winningpom.com.au (6/MAY/2013)

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Henschke is one of the longest established family names in the Barossa and the Australian wine industry. Johann Christian Henschke first planted vines in Keyneton in 1861, producing his first commercial vintage in 1868.

The tradition of quality winemaking has passed down through the generations – today seeing Stephen Henschke and his wife, Prue, as winemaker and viticulturist respectively.

Awarded "International Red Winemaker of the Year" in 1996 at the London Wine Show, Stephen and Prue were in 2006, awarded Gourmet Traveller WINE magazine's "Winemaker of the Year" in recognition of winemaking excellence in both red and white wines. These Awards recognise the consistent and continuing success of this remarkable couple.

Prue has, for the last 18 years, explored and now employs both organic and biodynamic strategies to maximise the potential for the fruit from these unique vineyards to fully express their individual terroirs.
