The name Kumala comes from a combination of local tribal dialects and means 'to do things differently.' Medium bodied with ripe blackberry and plum fruit. Juicy with a long, velvety finish and well balanced tannins. Kumala keeps on going from strength to strength and is arguably producing the best wine it has ever made under the confident leadership of Bruce Jack. The reason for this is the close relationship between the grape growers and our top winemakers. South Africa's wine producing area has 5 distinct regions, divided into 14 distinct districts. At Kumala, grapes are sourced from a number of these regions so that only the best quality is chosen. The grapes for Kumala Cape Red were fermented in stainless steel tanks to keep the juicy red fruit aromas before contact with French oak to add some spice and tannin. Recently awarded the title of Wine Personality of the Year at the Financial Mail Wine Business Awards, Bruce Jack is one of South Africa's biggest movers and shakers making distinctive, stylish wines.. Wine of Africa. Kumala.
