The Cinsault Revival in South Africa
Jim Clarke (Wines of South Africa) Alex Milner (Natte Valleij) Bernhard Bredell (Scions of Sinai)

Alex Milner, Natte Valleij, introduces a grape that has captured renewed attention around the wine world, Cinsault. Once the most planted red grape in South Africa, a work-horse used mainly in blends, it is now being given attention and older vineyards are delivering some exceptional, serious, wines. Cinsault has become a driver of New Wave South Africa. As a variety previously only recognised for its part in creating Pinotage, this is a new dawn.
