This wine from Henschke – the Keyneton Euphonium – made me wonder why I don’t drink more of it, more often. A blend of shiraz, cabernet sauvignon, merlot and cabernet franc, the 2009 vintage has attractive aromatics of plums, crushed dried herbs, gravel, currants and tea leaves. Ready to drink now, the palate has flavours reminding of plums and currants. There’s some good length on the palate, together with a pleasing balance.
