Cinsaut

Cinsault is a red variety that has been known about for centuries, has its origins in the south of France, and is recognized and used in Chateauneauf du Pape and in Languedoc Rousillon. In South Africa, it was typically referred to as Hermitage. This is why, by mixing it with Pinot Noir, the Pinotage grape emerged. It withstands droughts well. In Chile, it has found its home in the country’s south-central region, more specifically in the Itata Valley. This region, also referred to as coastal and rainfed, is where we find some of the few single-variety Cinsaults that are produced, wines that have been defined by journalists as easy to drink, fresh, tremendously fruity, and which enjoy enormous potential.
