The Adama range is named after Adam Appollis, a visionary of his time and forefather of many of the families that work and live on the Lelienfontein farm. This wine intersects three points of importance for the Bosman Family: History and heritage; Innovation to create new and exciting wines; and Sustainability.
The Adama Red blend is firmly nestled in this range as the winery uses interesting blends and components as well as modern tannin management theories. A perfect harmony of innovation and heritage, the wine is made to be an authentic rendition of elegant, modern winemaking and truthful to the families to which it plays homage.
The vineyards that grow these grapes have glenrosa and granite soils. The components of the blend are all delicately managed separately until the blend is finalized, approximately four months before bottling. This wine enjoys 9 months of new American oak and older French oak barrels.
This wine received 91 points from Tim Atkins, 4 stars in Platters Guide, Bronze in Decanter World Wine Awards, and Bronze in Old Mutual Trophy Wine Show.
