Crystallum‘Peter Max’ Pinot Noir 2019
A small, family run winery in the Walker Bay region, brothers Andrew and Peter-Allan are the third generation of Finlayson winemakers (and interestingly enough, the sons of the man who pioneered Pinot Noir making in the Hemel-en-Aarde valley). The grapes are 100% Hemel-en-Aarde sourced and loaded with crushed strawberry, cranberry and blueberry fruit. With an earthy finish, this wine is impossibly hard not to open on purchase – we dare you.
