Pair it with a Pinotage is a cross-pollination between the light and fruity Pinot Noir, and the aromatic, prominent and hearty Cinsault (or Hermitage, as known in France). The Pinotage is the only Proudly South African varietal, and also one of the youngest worldwide. It was created in 1925 by Professor Abraham Izak Perold at the University of Stellenbosch. Pinotage typically produces deep red varietal wines with smoky, bramble and earthy flavours, sometimes with notes of bananas and tropical fruit.
