Just because it has pinot noir as it’s Dad, don’t be lulled into thinking pinotage going to be safe as a cardigan and slippers, oh no. Its mum is crazy old cinsault and she injects some meaty tannins, deep plum, concentrated berry and chocolate flavours, which make this an utterly unputdownable (technical term there) red wine. This South African stunner will change your life.

Sip with slow cooked mandarin and ginger beef cheeks
