"With its blend of 66% Shiraz, 19% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc, the 2015 Keyneton Euphonium is a more structured Syrah-based blend than the Henry's Seven. Less generous young, it promises at least a decade of cellaring potential. Hints of cedar and green-edged tobacco appear on the nose, alongside scents of cassis, mocha and pristine earthy notes of clean compost. It's medium to full-bodied, with tannins that are both silky and firm providing focus and length. Drink: 2020-2030. 92 points

A member of the sixth generation of the family to work this Eden Valley property, Justine Henschke made it a point to show that the range of the family's efforts extends well beyond the big-name icon Shiraz bottlings from Hill of Grace and Mount Edelstone. In fact, this tasting included a few Henschke firsts for me—a Nebbiolo, a Tempranillo and a reserve-level Pinot Noir. The family's Lenswood property suffered severe damage in the Adelaide Hills bushfire this year, and it remains to be seen how quickly those vineyards will bounce back (the portions that survived) or how quickly replanting will be able to fill that void in the lineup. At least for now, the quality level across all of the offerings is commendable, with only four out of the 28 wines failing to reach 90 points. For my money, the best values are the Mount Edelstone Shiraz and the Cyril Henschke Cabernet Sauvignon, but I sincerely doubt that anyone who springs for the Hill of Grace in either of these vintages will be disappointed."
