Winery Man Vintners

Varietal: Pinotage

Pinotage is a red wine grape varietal which is most commonly associated with the wine industry of South Africa, although it has also been successfully cultivated in several other countries, most notably the United States and New Zealand. It was first grown in 1925, when it was created by a professor of viticulture, and came about as a cross between Pinot Noir and Cinsaut grapes. The Pinotage grape is a versatile one, and has been used to make a range of still red wines, alongside sparkling wines and fortified varieties. It is adored for its characteristically smoky flavors, and the notes of dark berries, plums and earthy touches often found in the wines it is made from. Pinotage has naturally high tannins and acidity levels, making it a popular grape for blending and aging.

Region: Coastal Region

The coastal region of South Africa is one of the most prodigious and productive wine regions on earth, and one which covers a vast distance making up for most of the tip of the African continent. The history of South African wines is a fascinating and surprisingly long one, with the very first wines in the country being produced by settlers in the 1650s, long before many other New World countries had even been discovered. Today, coastal South African wines are wildly popular around the world thanks to their big, fruity flavors and relative simplicity. Wineries in the region make the most of the hot sunshine, the high quality soils, and the brisk oceanic winds which keep disease at bay and stop the grapes from getting too hot, and produce a wide variety of wines of great distinction.

Country: South Africa

With its hot, long summers and oceanic winds from both the west and the east, South Africa is something of a haven for a wide range of imported grape varietals. Since the mid-18th century, the country has been associated with some very fine wines made using complex and careful blending techniques, with one of the most famous and widely loved early examples being constructed from Pontac, Muscadel and Chenin Blanc varietals. Since those colonial days, the regions around Cape Town have proven again and again to be fantastic areas for producing interesting and delicious wines, with many of the best examples of Champagne style sparkling wines originating from these fertile lands. From the scorchingly hot regions of Orange Rivers, to the far cooler and temperate appellations in Walker Bay, South Africa has developed a booming wine industry responsible for many of the finest New World wines available anywhere across the globe.
