Crystallum 2021s – Pace-setting Chardonnay and Pinot Noir

2021 Crystallum

Pace-setting Chardonnay and Pinot Noir

Peter-Allan Finlayson continues to 'set the pace for top-end Chardonnay and Pinot noir', says Christian Eedes. Since inception, Crystallum’s single vineyards have been highly regarded – and for good reason. Their distinctive character sets them apart, reflecting true winemaking virtuosity.

From an Elandskloof vineyard (700 metres above sea level), the Mabalel 2021 is 'sumptuous with creamy texture' and offers earlier drinking pleasure with its supple tannins and seductive aromatics.

Trumping last year’s stellar release, the 2021 Bona Fide – from the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley – is rich and full with inviting, defined florals and a savoury, textured finish. Full of focus, power and purity, it’s best enjoyed after a few years in the cellar.

The 2021 Cuvée Cinéma grows in stature with each release. From the Hemel-en-Aarde Ridge, it has once again joined the select group of Pinots that are rated 95+ by Christian, who calls it 'a wine of remarkable definition and drive'. A firm favourite at Wine Cellar!

The 2021 Clay Shales, from a 0.5-hectare single vineyard in the Hemel-en-Aarde Ridge, is always one of our best-loved Chardonnays with its big personality and textured palate. Unfortunately, volumes are seriously down this vintage and the wine is fully allocated.

Finally, the 2021 Ferrum Chardonnay is captivating. This is only the second release from Peter-Allan and Andrew Finlayson’s own iron-rich vineyards. Flinty reduction, white stone fruit and citrus aromatics lead to a palate that has great fruit linearity, with a savoury, salty finish.
