Zeppelin Ferdinand Barossa Valley Shiraz 2010
The influence of the German migrants that settled the Eden Valley is seen today in a rich and diverse culture enjoyed by a myriad of family wineries whose names proudly proclaim their heritage. Count Ferdinand von Zeppelin was an innovator who liked to think big, really big, and was not afraid to risk it all.
Deep dark inky purple colour with slight hints of red colours flashing through. Rich and opulent with intense aromas of blackberry, blackcurrant, cassis, Satsuma plum with splashes of mulberry high tones. Sumptuous and rich textures in the mouth with beautiful ripe black-fruits flowing seamlessly across the palate. Blackberry, dark plum and macerated black cherry fruits are lifted by a waft of violet blossom. The layered cake of five spice, raison fruit, dark chocolate, liquorice and judicious spicy vanillin oak provide a complex and rewarding wine with the finish which keeps on following through but with balance and purity.
Deep crimson; the bouquet offers restrained black and red fruits, mocha and bitter chocolate; the medium-bodied palate is dark and dense, with ample chewy tannins and a warm charry oak finish.
