Winery Profile

Zeppelin was created by “Artisan of the Barossa” winemakers Corey Ryan and Kym Teusner. The wines are made using traditional techniques and a “hands off ” philosophy to create wines full of character. Proud of the region’s German heritage, the brand was named in honour of Count Ferdinand von Zeppelin – a brave and progressive man who thought big, really big.

VINEYARDS

Zeppelin is sourced from vineyards either owned by Teusner Wines or Sons of Eden, selected for their age (up to 80 years old), low yielding nature and character. Ferdinand is from a vineyard in Greenock, the Barossa Shiraz in Angaston and the Barossa Grenache is sourced from 60 to 80 year old vines between Greenock and Ebenezer.

WINEMAKING PHILOSOPHY

A very simplistic approach to winemaking, preserving individual vineyard character and making wines with personality. The red wines are made using open fermenters, pumped over by hand, and basket pressed. Predominantly older French oak is used, with Ferdinand up to 50% new, before bottling without fining or filtration. Minimal sulphur added.
