2021 Kumusha Pinotage Western Cape
Winemaker Notes: Nose of dark cherries and mulberries. Balanced palate with flavors of ripe plums and spice.
Kumusha in the Zimbabwean Shona language translates to 'your home', 'your roots', or 'your origin'. World renowned sommelier, Tinashe Nyamudoka believes the best wines are representative of their region. Through a collaborative process with respect to the vine, the winemaker, and the consumer, Tinashe is building a brand of wines that represent and honor your roots. Using a minimal intervention approach and natural fermentation, Tinashe's aim is to let the wine be free to do the talking of its origin and to provide a model for Black wine entrepreneurs to follow.
