Crystallum Peter Max 2020

Western Cape

Magnificent, barrel-matured Pinot Noir from a top Cape winery, rated by Atkin as 'First Growth'. It produces "some of South Africa's finest Pinot Noirs" (Neal Martin). Still young, the Peter Max is still tight with layers of silky fruit and spice.

In 2007 brothers Andrew and Peter-Allan Finlayson founded the Crystallum estate, with their first vintage in 2008. 12 years later, they are regarded as leaders in South African winemaking. Tim Atkin MW rates them 'First Growth' and critic Neal Martin wrote of the Crystallum wines, "Here is one of Hemel-en-Aarde’s most refined and terroir-driven expressions of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir." They are sons of the renowned Peter Finlayson, a pioneer of Hemel en Aarde and today they focus purely on Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Peter Max is a superbly crafted red, with fruit taken from five vineyards in Hemel en Aarde and one higher in Overberg. Wild yeasts, 50% whole bunch fermentation and French oak brings Burgundian finesse to this great wine.

"The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, taut and crisp, delivering very pure tart red fruit" Neal Martin
