2017 Lanzerac PROF Pinot Noir Cinsault


The inspiration for this wine is an effort to find out what Professor Abraham Perold had in mind when he created Pinotage by crossing Cinsaut and Pinot Noir in 1925. It was at Welgevallen (University of Stellenbosch research farm) that Prof Perold cultivated the first Pinotage vines. Prof Perold never had the opportunity to taste the first bottled wine made from this grape variety, and with the crafting of this wine Wynand Lategan tried to discover the purpose of Prof Perold’s creation.

The PROF is a blend of 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Cinsault. The varietals were harvested and vinified separately.

After approximately a year of maturation in older French oak barrels the wine was blended and left to mature for a further 2-3 months in barrel.

Tasting Note: Mostly the fresher red berries and red fruits. A soft and delicate palate with an underlying complexity rounds this wine out seamlessly.

Origin: Western Cape, South Africa

Alcohol: 13.0%
