Below is an excerpt of Fiona Beckett’s feature for The Guardian:
Just as South Africa’s white wines have been undergoing a revolution (see my last column), so have its reds. At one time, you might have described them as classic “New World” (even though the country’s winemaking history goes back to the 17th century): big, ripe, full-bodied, wannabe Aussie blockbusters.
“Cinsault is also getting time in the sun in its own right, and is one of the reds to watch in 2016. Many of the most exciting ones I tried still have to make it over here, but in the meantime enjoy Waterkloof’s Seriously Cool Cinsault 2014 next time you have a plate of charcuterie.
