Aslina Umsasane 2020 Red Wine

Aslina Umsasane 2020 Red Wine

Winemaker Ntsiki Biyela has an incredible history as the first female black winemaker in South Africa. Her new label, Aslina, is named in honor of her grandmother. She uses fruit from the Western Cape to make this full-bodied red blend that shows layers of complex fruit, spice and cocoa notes.

Umsasne 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 honour the characteristics of Aslina, the matriarch of the family.
