*9W* 2021 Kumusha "Flame Lily" White Blend (Western Cape, SA)
Notify me when this product is available:
These phenomenal wines are made by world renowned sommelier Tinashe Nyamudoka, whose explosive career in the South African hospitality scene ultimately led him to create his own brand. "Kumusha" is a Shona word meaning "your home," "your roots," or "your origin" and is a callback to his home country of Zimbabwe. Richness and sensuality are met with a taut minerally acidity, enhancing flavors of melon, white peach, apple, and lemon zest. Highly complementary to Asian inspired dishes or roasted chicken.

About The Producer
Originally from Zimbabwe, Kumusha founder Tinashe Nyumudoka moved to South Africa where he began his journey in the wine industry. From waiter to head sommelier of Africa's highest acclaimed restaurant, The Test Kitchen, Nyumudoka decided to try his own hand at winemaking in 2017 when he first launched Kumusha with help of friend Attie Louw, a windemaker from the Opstal family estate in Slanghoek valley. From our first sip of Kumusha Sauvignon Blanc, we fell in love and instantly knew these would become staple bottles on our shelves.
