About Pinotage

Pinotage is a hybrid between Pinot Noir and Cinsault that’s grown almost exclusively in South Africa. It produces deep red wines high in tannins with smoky dark fruit flavors accented by earthy bramble characteristics. Pinotage is also commonly blended with other varieties, producing what is referred to as a Cape Blend in South Africa.
