Sometimes spelled 'cinsaut', it is most known for it connection with the Languedoc region of southern France. It has much in common with grenache, and is at its best when yields are limited to less than 40hl/ha. The wines are light and soft with distinct berryish flavours and it is particularly useful for rosé wine production.


It travelled down through Morocco to South Africa where it was popular in the 1950s, when it was crossed with pinot noir to produce South Africa's pinotage, since then its popularity has declined in all but France where it is much used and is one of the permitted varieties for Châteauneuf-du-Pape.
