South African wine trumps new world reds in Decanter magazine


Adama 2007, a Shiraz-based blend from Bosman Family Vineyards has been rated by UK Master of Wine Steven Spurrier as the Best New World Red in the February issue of Decanter magazine.
Spurrier, who described the wine as “fleshy yet grippy” and “explosive”, has placed the Adama alongside the likes of Chateau De L’Engarran’s Coteaux Du Languedoc (Best Old World Red), and Frederic Magnien’s Les Larrets (Best Old World White).
The Bosman’s flagship blend, Adama derives its name from Adam Appollis; one of the first workers on the Lelienfontein farm when the Bosmans acquired it in 1798. Many of the current workers are the direct descendants of Adam, or Adama as he was known; and are members of the Adama Trust, the Bosman’s empowerment partners.
Adama 2007 is an unusual blend of 85% Shiraz with Mourv?+¦???+¦?+¦-+?+¦+ëdre, Primitivo and Viognier., Additional awards won by this maiden vintage wine include a gold medal and third place overall in the 2008 Juliet Cullinan Wine Connoisseur’s Awards.
