Expert Reviews

Spicy, dried mint, rose oil, juicy raspberry and cherry fruits. Slight pepper. Low oak, soft texture with some savory BBQ flavors mingling with the sweet fruit. A bit easy and slutty in style but good at it. Slight acid nip on finish. Rating 90 - Gary Walsh, www.winefront.com.au (19/OCT/2010)

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma/Palate

Winemaking Note

The 2009 Zeppelin Barossa Valley Shiraz is from a single low yielding vineyard in the Angaston foothills. A very simplistic 'hands off' winemaking approach was used with open fermenters pumped over by hand twice daily before basket pressing. Separate parcels were matured in old oak for 12 - 18 months before bottling without fining or filtration.

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.
