Notes

'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, the team behind Crystallum.

Tasting notes:
'Peter-Allan Finlayson's Western Cape cuvée is a seamless medley of fruit from Elgin, Overberg and the Hemel-en-Aarde Ridge. The oak is very understated here, complementing a wine that is subtle, elegant and graceful, with sappy wet stone and lemon butter flavours. 2020-24.' – Tim Atkin SA Special Report 2019, 93/100

'Grapes sourced from Elgin, Hemel-en-Aarde Ridge and the Overberg. Matured for eight months, 80% in older barrels and 20% in foudre. A rather shy nose with elusive notes of citrus and dried herbs while the palate shows good fruit definition, nicely coated acidity and a savoury finish. Seamlessly assembled, an archetypal example of the variety. Alcohol: 13%.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 91/100
