Cinsault (Cinsaut)

Cinsault (Cinsaut)

Widely planted across the Languedoc but at its best when restricted to small yields. Particularly good for rosé wines. Cinsault's wine usually has a fine red colour, is soft and rich, with a pleasant perfume.

In the Languedoc it gives suppleness and balance to Carignan and Grenache. It is a prime grape in many famous appellations, such as Fitou, Minervois, Corbières and St. Chinian. When it was exported to South Africa it was originally known as Hermitage (although French Hermitage has none in its blend) before reverting to the slightly different spelling, Cinsaut. There are also Cinsaut plantings in Australia, although it has yet to achieve popularity there.

From gnarly old vineyards Cinsualt is the Cape's favourite red grape with its abundance of soft bramble fruit and a twist of darkly exotic spice.
