Inhaltsangabe: Peter F May tells the story of this uniquely South African grape variety, its creator Professor Abraham Perold and the people who grow and make Pinotage.

During researches in South Africa Peter F May was told information that differed from the standard definition of Pinotage in text books. Turning detective, May investigated various legends about Pinotage's parentage and origins.

"I felt like Sherlock Holmes," says May "as winemakers told me things in confidence that contradicted everything I'd read about Pinotage."

May travelled to four continents to interview winemakers and winery owners for the book which details how Pinotage is grown, made and marketed. As well as covering growing, making and marketing Pinotage in South Africa, he provides a comprehensive review of Pinotage in other countries.

"Pinotage is a wine of great importance in its homeland that is getting increasing international attention and yet there was little reliable information available", says May. "Since no-one was doing so, I decided to write a book that would place the facts on record and nail the rumours. I ended with a book which is part mystery, part history, part travel book and yet all about wine."

PINOTAGE: Behind the Legends of South Africa's Own Wine tells of Peter F May's infatuation with the Pinotage variety and follows his investigations into its origins. After exhaustive investigations into various legends about the variety he identifies when and how it was created and first planted and he discovers the oldest living Pinotage vineyard.

The book contains a history of winemaking in South Africa and a biography of Pinotage's creator, Professor Abraham Perold.

May investigates various legends about the variety including ones that say it has Shiraz or an American rootstock vine in it parentage and the reasons for Pinotage's creation.

In the second part of the book May discusses growing, making and marketing Pinotage wines with case studies of several classic South African vineyards and wineries.

Various styles of Pinotage are discussed, the Cape Blend controversy is covered and criticisms of the variety are analysed.

In the third section of the book, the author takes a look at Pinotage in other countries. His travels take him from South Africa to California and Virginia, Canada, Israel and New Zealand.

This timely book is for anyone interested in wine and wine making, and those who want to know the full story about South Africa's wine gift to the world.

Klappentext: 1925. In South Africa Professor Perold is crossing grape varieties, striving for the perfect wine. Did he succeed? The quest to unravel the truth of Pinotage's parentage spans decades and continents, with myths and legends appearing at every turn.

Wine explorer Peter F May is a modern day Indiana Jones, tracking down long-lost journals, turning dusty pages of long-forgotten books and analysing high technology DNA results to unravel this mystery.

Travel with Peter from the dusty wine cellars of South Africa to the noise of London's Tube, from ancient French vineyards to modern wineries in Texas to unearth the ancestors of this award-winning wine. Along the way you'll see whale pods kiss the coastline, savour the swirl of wine on an African savannah, infiltrate the musty depths of a restricted library, and take part in solving one of the most fascinating mysteries to ever tantalise the wine world.
