Slanghoek Valley, South Africa
What to expect: The first US release of this highly coveted, sustainably-produced wine (only 250 cases made) from award-winning sommelier turned winemaker Tinashe Nyamudoka. Pretty notes of honeysuckle mingle with unctous aromas of canned peaches, green melon, and a touch of citrus rind. On the palate, the wine is plush and waxy but Chenin’s zesty acid keeps this beauty impeccably balanced. The finish goes on and on and on. Keep an eye on Kumusha – this is just the beginning.
Optimal Experience: Serve chilled, but not too cold. Tinashe suggests serving this wine with simply seared scallops. Yes please!
