2022 Kumusha Chenin Blanc Western Cape
Winemaker Notes: Nose of pear, white peach, and lime. Juicy palate with flavors of cantaloupe melon, and papaya, finishing dry.
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.
Chenin blanc from the Breedekloof Valley where fruit purity and freshness are ever present. This wine is a combination of 2 vineyards - one, a 38-year old vineyard, and the other a dry-farmed vineyard sitting at 380 meters above sea level. 20% of the wine spent 6 months in large oak casks with the balance in a combination of stainless and concrete. In total, the wine spent 7 months maturing on its gross lees. Vegan friendly.
