Pinotage is grown almost exclusively in South Africa. It is a cross of Pinot Noir and Cinsault, created in 1925 by scientist Abraham Perold and forgotten till another research scientist came across the vines Abraham had planted. South Africa today uses Pinotage to make everything from low-cost quaffing wine to quality wines full of flavours of berries and spice.
Hazy View, from Winemaker Hannes Storm, has been pretty popular in the UK over the years and is on the list of many London restaurants.
