Based in the Walker Bay region of South Africa, Crystallum is run by brothers Peter-Allan and Andrew Finlayson, 3rd-generation winemakers who focus on Burgundy varieties. The Cuvée Cinéma is produced entirely from the Hemel-en-Aarde Ridge and is the most refined and desired of the three Crystallum single vineyard pinot noirs. It was named after a film based on the life of Napoleon that was shot on the site a year prior to the vineyards being planted.

 

'This has a freshness and a brightness that reflects the altitude of the vineyards. It’s still a bold, succulent, age-worthy wine, with dark fruits and a spicy, sappy, savoury core, but the acidity lifts the wine to another level.'  Tim Atkin MW 2014, 94/100
