France Approves Pinotage

Pinotage is one of five 'foreign' varieties that have been approved by  L’Institut Français de la Vigne et du Vin (IFV) for growing in France to produce wine. The Institute says that Pinotage
"makes deep coloured wines, powerful and fruity with aromas of blackberry and plum. Pinotage is well suited to the production of rosé wines."
The other  newly approved varieties are Nebbiolo, Nero d’Avola, Saperavi and Touriga nacional.
