2001 Keyneton Estate, Shiraz/Cabernet, Henschke
Fine & Mature Australian Collection
91pts The Wine Advocate
One of the more well-known wines in this portfolio is the Keyneton Estate. The 2001, a blend of 72% Shiraz, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 8% Merlot, is more Bordeaux than Rhone-like. Aromas of black currants, licorice, tobacco leaf, and spice box are followed by a medium-bodied, elegant, pure red.
This is a real star. Stephen Henschke's shiraz based blend is delicious in youth, and even more enticing with 15 years maturity. Great winemaking here.
