Grape Varieties - Cinsault

You might like to try...

This is clearly an old variety. DNA analysis suggests that it hails from the Languedoc area of southern France, yet it long ago spread its wings and colonised parts of Spain and southern Italy. Cinsault is very resistant to heat, so is ideal for the Mediterranean climate. Cinsault was crossed with Pinot Noir to create the Cape's own Pinotage grape.
