Question: Tasted a South African red wine Cape blend The Flatrock from Rhebokskloof that featured the Durif grape variety (mixed with Shiraz & Pinotage). Is there another name for that grape?

Answer: Yes indeed. Synonym for the same grape is Petite Sirah, You see this name used more often in America (California). This grape variety always contributes a lot of deep colour to the wine.
