After a formidable career in the South African hospitality industry, working at some of Africa’s finest hotels and restaurants, respected sommelier Tinashe Nyamudoka was ready for new beginnings. Since relocating to Johannesburg, Tinashe – an accomplished master blender – launched his own wine brand, Kumusha Wines, into the South African market as well as further afield.
This Cabernet Sauvignon underwent fermentation in open oak casks and extended maceration for 30 days, after which it was aged in 300L French oak barrels for 12 months. It is medium-to-full-bodied and juicy, with aromas and flavors of raspberries, red currants, and cassis. It is plush on the mid-palate and kept light on its feet by vibrant acidity that brings it to a long finish.
Kumusha in the Zimbabwean Shona language translates to ‘your home’, ‘your roots’ or ‘your origin’. Created with World Renowned Sommelier Tinashe Nyamudoka. Tinashe 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 their roots. Minimal intervention wine making and natural fermentation is aimed at letting the wine be free to do the talking of its origin. These are wines that Tinashe would not only like to drink himself, but wines that, from his experience as a sommelier, are representative of what is leading the way for the style of South African wines.
Born and raised in Zimbabwe, Tinashe’s career in hospitality began as a waiter at the Roundhouse Restaurant in Cape Town, followed by a wine steward position at One&Only Cape Town’s contemporary Asian restaurant Nobu, where he was soon promoted to Sommelier. After receiving the Reaching for Young Stars Best Wine Steward Award in 2013, Tinashe was in the spotlight as the one to watch. His next career role was head sommelier at the famed Oyster Box Hotel in Umhlanga, followed by five years at Africa’s top restaurant, The Test Kitchen. It was at this acclaimed fine-dining restaurant where the affable ‘wine whisperer’ won Wine Service Awards. After a formidable career in the South African hospitality industry, working at some of Africa’s finest hotels and restaurants, respected sommelier Tinashe Nyamudoka was ready for new beginnings. Since relocating to Johannesburg, Tinashe – an accomplished master blender – is set to entrench his own wine brand, Kumusha Wines, into the South African market, as well as further afield.
