Pitch-perfect duo: Crystallum The Agnes and Peter Max
Crystallum The Agnes and Peter Max (our bestselling Pinot)
The Crystallum Peter Max is a perennial Wine Cellar favourite as it offers accessibility without compromising any complexity. Given 92/100 from Neal Martin – and amongst the highest-rated Pinots in his latest report – gives context for the quality and value to be found in the 2020 Peter Max.
Crystallum 2020 releases
The 2020 is a wonderfully elegant and perfumed Pinot. It draws you in with its primal, earthy mystery and the palate is fleshy and plush to the end. 'Structured like a Morey-Saint-Denis,' writes Neal, it is 'excellent'. While ready to drink now, it can be kept and enjoyed over the next 5 – 10 years.
Crystallum's 2020 The Agnes Chardonnay is out of this world. Brilliantly conceived, it hails from five vineyards – three in the Hemel-en-Aarde, one in Elgin and, crucially, one from a high-altitude, 700m Ceres vineyard. It walks a perfect line of integrated oak seduction and linear precision. This is a quintessential South African Chardonnay and, like its sibling above, offers exceptional value!
