South African WineTraditionally, South African wine was known for two varietals - Chenin Blanc (known there as Steen) and Pinotage, a less than successful try at making a hardier, higher yielding Pinot Noir (by crossing it with Cinsault, which grows like a weed).
Their Chenin Blanc is still top notch, and Pinotage still has its devotees. But South Africa is now known for much more.
