Notes

Winemakers' comments:
'We seek to produce classic wines in a new world context that reflect a traditional, age-old way of working coupled with the new world vineyards which we source our fruit from. The only varieties that we work with are Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, with multi vineyard blends and single vineyard wines making up the collection.' – Andrew and Peter-Allan, Crystallum.

Vineyard blocks:
The 2016 Peter Max Pinot Noir is a crafted from fruit sourced from four vineyards, three in the Hemel en Aarde area of Walker Bay and one on a high altitude, inland site. The vineyards form the perfect building blocks to reflect the challenging, but surprisingly very good 2016 vintage.

Production:
The 2016 Peter Max is naturally fermented with 70% of the fruit de-stemmed and the remainder left as whole clusters. Extraction is kept to a minimum during active fermentation with a total time of 4 weeks on the skins. 10% New French Oak.

Analysis:
pH: 3.48 Alc: 14.1% TA: 5.0 RS: 2.4
