Cinsault, also known as Cinsaut, is a red-grape variety traditionally used in Southern Rhône blends with Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre. It has developed hundreds of synonyms due to its wide distribution and long history of cultivation. Despite a decline in plantings in recent years, Cinsault is receiving renewed attention. It is a versatile grape, producing a soft wine with low tannins and light brick red color, with bright red berry fruit notes. It is grown in many regions around the world, including France, Africa, Australia and America. It is tolerant of hot, dry climates and is known for its floral and strawberry-like perfume as a blended wine. Cinsault grapes are prone to mildew and trunk diseases and require attentive viticulture to manage crop levels.
