Shiraz Cinsaut Wine
Cinsaut was used to breed the successful South African variety Pinotage, named after its parents Pinot Noir and Hermitage, as Cinsaut was once inaccurately but widely known in the Cape. South Africa was home to two colour mutations of Cinsaut: one with grey berries and one with white berries.
Shiraz is the Australian name for Syrah, and some authors even argued that the Australians had maintained the original name while the French had ‘Frenchified’ it. This grape varietal is fresh and medium-bodied and a must try!
