The Ludwig

chardonnay 2017

The inspiration for the Ludwig Chardonnay comes from two imaginative people. The first is a German friend, and the creative mind behind the ‘Adam’s Leap’ name. While it’s not his legal German moniker, the moment I heard the story of how Ludwig became his official name in Australia is a comedy of errors that made me laugh so much I cried. The second is a visionary composer of beautiful symphonies. The Ludwig is a creative single vineyard Chardonnay that is a symphony of fun and sophistication. Enjoy it with friends who inspire your creativity, and make you laugh so hard you cry.

Tasting notes

Barrel fermented in 20% new French oak, and followed by malolactic fermentation, the result is a classic Chardonnay with subtle characters of brioche, white peach and honeydew, which enrich the elegant, crisp, and restrained palate.

The Insolent Cavalier

shiraz 2017

The Insolent Cavalier Shiraz is a one of a kind! It is a classic fruit-forward Hunter Valley Shiraz with a twist. The Insolent Cavalier is a sophisticated, yet approachable single vineyard Shiraz made with uncompromising quality, and a cheeky side that will light up your palate. Enjoy the Insolent Cavalier with your friends, or anyone who exudes a mix of sophistication and a healthy disdain for authority.

Tasting notes

The Insolent Cavalier is a creative take on a classic Hunter Shiraz. It is a medium bodied wine with bold cherry and black berry characters, enhanced by
hints of black pepper.

The Ma Mére

shiraz/viognier 2017

The Ma Mère Shiraz/Viognier was inspired by my mom, Dr Susan Kossak. She is one of the smartest and most creative people I know. She is a professor, a sculptor, and a friend. The Ma Mère is a wine borne out of those very same qualities of creativity and ingenuity. The few rows of Viognier in the vineyard produced exceptional fruit, as did the Shiraz, allowing for the addition of whole bunches of Viognier to the Shiraz to produce a wonderful Hunter Shiraz with an edge of European style. Enjoy this wine with your mom, or anyone else who inspires you.

Tasting notes

The Ma Mère is a creative blend of 3% Viognier with 97% Shiraz. The bouquet is an elegant mixture of dark fruit characters and floral elements. This creates a medium bodied wine with dense fruit and hints of vanilla and spice.
