Crystallum
Mabalel Pinot Noir, 2014
6 (1 x 6) 750ml
Based in the Walker Bay region of South Africa, Crystallum is run by brothers Peter-Allen and Andrew Finlayson. Third-generation winemakers, the first vintage was in 2007 before Burgundian varieties of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir were introduced a year later. This wine is named after a tragic poem by legendary South African polymath Eugene Marais, with the vineyard being planted on a high-lying young inland vineyard in the Overberg, known as the Kaaimansgat. 2014 was the maiden vintage.

From a high-lying young inland (Elandskloof) vineyard, 14 from all destemmed grapes. Concentrated & refined, marrying pure red berry fruit with spicy oak & long velvety exit. Well-judged oaking on all these pinots.’ Platter’s SA Wine Guide 2016, 4.5*

Intense and interesting. Edgy but with masses of fine fruit in the middle. All within a herbal wreath. So much intensity and ambition from Andrew and Peter-Allan Finlayson. Really exciting!’ Jancis Robinson (September 2016), 17.5/20
