The 2015 represents a milestone for this wine - the 10th vintage Adi has made - and probably the best so far. You can overlook the Family Red in its youth but Adi's Family Red ages really well. It takes time to open up. So decant it and be patient.


Tasting Notes

"The syrah-based, all whole-bunch-pressed Family Red 2015 is still notably tight and youthful; bright red fruit, sweet primary fruit aromas but delicate. My note says: “Lovely lovely structure, great acidity. Such finesse. Perfect balance but still tight. Serious tannic structure. Good future, will gain flesh. Has ripeness.” Tim James, Grape.co.za. 93 points


Press Note:

"52% Shiraz, 21% Grenache, 18% Cinsault, 9% Tinta Barocca. Red and black berries, spice plus a hint of reduction on the nose. The palate shows pure fruit, fresh acidity and densely packed, mouth-coating tannins – plenty of grunt despite a modest alcohol of 13% and seemingly in need of a year or three to settle down. 92/100" - winemag.co.za "The syrah-based, all whole-bunch-pressed Family Red 2015 is still notably tight and youthful; bright red fruit, sweet primary fruit aromas but delicate.
