Crystallum is highly regarded among South African winerys, but Peter-Allen Finlayson is not resting on his laurels. His continued efforts to improve the quality of the wines saw the discovery of new sources of excellent fruit, and some reduction in the quantity of new oak used in maturation.

This is a delcious blend of Swartland Syrah, and Grenache and Mourvedre produced from grapes growin in Hemel-en-Arde Valley. 

Information About Crystallum

Crystallum wines is a small, family run and privately owned winery based in the Walker Bay region of South Africa.

The brothers are the third generation of Finlayson winemakers and the sons of the man who pioneered Pinot Noir making in the Hemel-en-Aarde valley. Andrew is an Architect by training and Peter-Allan studied philosophy and economics at the University of Stellenbosch. It did not however, take long for the lure of wine to pull them back into the cellar.

The company was started in 2007 with 4134 bottles of Sauvignon Blanc produced. The 2008 vintage saw the introduction of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Crystallum is now exclusively producing these Burgundian varieties. – Crystallum Team

Tasting Date : 07 September 2014

Starts off quite subtly, then has an open, chewy, interesting fruit flavour with more than a hint of oxidative character about it. That's not to say it's un-fresh, more that it doesn't rely on pure, ripe fruit. Really lovely.

Rating : 17/20
