Kumusha The Flame Lily White Blend 2021
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.
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.
