Zeppelin was created by Artisans of the Barossa Corey Ryan and Kym Teusner, with a view to crafting full flavoured Barossa wines of immense personality and style. Labelled in commemoration of Barossa Valley's German heritage, the brand was named in honour of Count Ferdinand von Zeppelin, a brave and progressive entrepreneur. Big Bertha is a bold, well structured Shiraz with real flavour, fashioned for early appreciation from fruit grown to precious old vineyard sites in the northern viticultural precincts of Barossa Valley.
A highly traditional, minimalist approach to winemaking preserves the character of the good vineyard fruit and expression of terroir. Harvests of intensely flavoured Shiraz grapes are treated to an extended maceration, open fermentations, manual pumpovers and basket pressing, followed by maturation in a selection of predominantly older French oak barrels for a year. Big Bertha remains unfined and is bottled with minimal sulphur addition to maximise fruit expression.
TASTING NOTES
Deep red in colour. Expansive nose of fragrant dark cherries and fruit, flowers, pepper and meats. The palate is a showcase of pure unforced Barossa Shiraz, medium to full bodied with dark berry flavours, a seductive fruit sweetness and soft savoury tannins. Offering excellent freshness and superb length, the charming and characterful, fruit driven Bertha is immensely satisfying immediately upon release.
