2020 Aslina Umsasane Red Blend, Western Cape, Stellenbosch, South Africa
This is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Umsasane is the Zulu word for umbrella tree, which gives shelter, protection, and comfort. It was Ntsiki’s grandmother’s nickname and the bold structure, smoothness, and complexity of this wine honor the characteristics of Aslina, the matriarch of the family.
