Description
 
Crystallum is a family-run and privately-owned winery based in the Walker Bay region of South Africa. 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. The company was founded in 2007 when it produced just over four thousand bottles of Sauvignon Blanc. The following vintage saw the introduction of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay and Crystallum now produces these Burgundian varieties exclusively, making up its collection with multi-vineyard blends and single-vineyard wines.

The 2014 Clay Shales Chardonnay, from just outside Hemel-en-Aarde that actually performs better when it is cropped at a higher yield (according to Peter-Allan Finlayson), has a little more intensity than the 2015 Agnes. Matured in 15% new oak, it has a seductive bouquet with lime flower and apricot blossom scents that draw you in. The palate is very well balanced, crisp and tensile; there is wonderful acidity here in this Chardonnay with bite and race. It then segues into a saline, marine-tinged finish that begs you to take another sip. Love this! You will too. Wine Advocate 93 (2014)
