Cinsault and Pinotage are part of the heritage in Stellenbosch, normally Pinotage takes centre stage. Here, Bernhard explains: “Cinsault is the father and Pinotage is the son – on a light soil Cinsault can be one dimensional, Pinotage adds texture”. The name derives from the fact that these grapes were nomadic, they didn’t have a home before they went into this wine. A touch of earlier harvested Pinotage seasons the Cinsault making an immensely crunchy and moreish wine, but with some complexity. If you like Gamay this will be right up your street.
