CINSAULT

The Cinsault grape is a high-yielding, heat-loving red variety from France’s southern Rhône region, used in blends including Châteauneuf-du-Pape and Cotes du Rhone. Cinsault also makes light, fruity varietal wines and fortified wines. In the Tavel appellation, known for delightful rosés, winemakers may blend the Cinsault with Grenache.
