Pinot noir is a black wine grape variety associated with some of the world’s most expensive still and sparkling wines. The name, derived from the French words that mean “pine” and “black”, refers to the compact conical shape of the grape bunches that resemble a pine cone and the dark colour of the berries.
Pinot noir is believed to be one of the oldest clones of the Pinot family. It is estimated that about 20 mutations of Pinot noir exist, of which Pinot gris and Pinot blanc are also cultivated in South Africa, albeit on small scale.
