Crystallum, based in Walker Bay, is a family-run and privately-owned winery which was started in 2007. Brothers Andrew and Peter-Allan are the third generation of Finlayson winemakers and sons of the man who pioneered Pinot Noir winemaking in the Hemel-en-Aarde region. They specialise in Burgundian varieties and follow a low-intervention winemaking approach. Peter-Allan Finlayson is a leader in producing some of the finest modern-day South African Pinot Noirs. Neal Martin says of their wines: ‘These are some of South Africa's finest Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays.’ Join our mailing list if you would like to hear of any new Crystallum releases.
