Awards/Reviews

4 ½ Stars 2022 Platter’s South African Wine Guide

Dashes, chenin, viognier, Semillon & columbard in roussanne-dominated 20 (93 pts). Perfumed & rounded, with ripe peach & pear richness on the nose & palate, latter lifted by savoury grip from skin-fermented component. Shade less detailed than superlative roussanne & chenin-led 19 (96 pts).

Winemaker Notes

Tinashe Nyamudoka, Sommelier

Kumusha in the Zimbabwean Shona language translates to ‘your home’, ‘your roots’ or ‘your origin’. Through a collaborative process where
I respect the vine, the winemaker and the consumer, I try to build a brand of wines that represent and honour their roots.

The 2019 vintage was more powerful, but 2020 is proving to be more subtle and elegant. It was a cooler vintage and it shows with the fresh flowers, pear and lemon peel on the nose. Gentle mouthfeel with hints of chamomile and apricots. Lively acidity giving a mouth-watering finish. Drinks best for up to 6 years.

Handpicked grapes. The Chenin blanc is from registered old vines. Gently pressed into a settling tank for 36 hrs. A component of Chenin
blanc was fermented until dry on the skins. Racked into old French Oak where alcoholic and Malolactic fermentation occurs spontaneously.
10months ageing before bottling. Unfined.

Roussanne 55%, Chein Blanc 15%, Viognier, 12%, 9% Semillon
