2021 Kumusha 'The Flame Lily' White Blend Western Cape
Winemaker Notes: Nose of fresh flowers, pear, and lemon peel. Gentle palate with flavors of chamomile and apricots and lively acidity.
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.

Wine Enthusiast - "Ripe yellow melon, baked apple, lemon custard and pear-tart aromas all abound on the nose of this rich, golden-hued wine made from 55% Roussanne, 15% Chenin Blanc, 12% Viognier, 9% Sémillon and 9% Colombard. Those notes all carry through to the medium-weight mouth, where additional tones of grilled pineapple and peach add even more fruity depth and richness. Ample acidity keeps the concentration in check, while a subtle texture lends some framework and interest through the close."
