Zeppelin Single Vineyard Shiraz 2010

A fairly good drop representing decent value.

Made with single vineyard fruit and minimal intervention - hand picked, basket pressed, aged in older oak (12-18 months), bottled without fining or filtration.

Raspberries and mulberries first up but a little reductive character was picked up. This blew away soon after.

These flavours  were smooth and followed through along with some chocolate nuances. Good fruit present and the tannins are fine and silky. A little more structure would kick it along as the flavours appeared to melt away a little quicker than expected.

Worth a look and it doesn't break the bank for an easy drink. Ideal for lasagne.
