We are thrilled that the highly anticipated limited wine releases for this year have commenced, and they are already generating considerable excitement among wine connoisseurs. However, it is worth noting that the production quantities of these exceptional wines appear to have experienced a decline. As a result, the existing high demand for these wines has been compounded by their increasing scarcity, making them even more challenging to acquire.
Crystallum, a family-run winery in South Africa’s Walker Bay region, is helmed by brothers Andrew and Peter-Allan, third-generation Finlayson winemakers. Andrew’s love for vineyards and Peter-Allan’s passion for the cellar led them to create the company in 2007. Starting with Sauvignon Blanc, they expanded to include Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, and now exclusively produce these Burgundian varieties. Today, Crystallum offers a range of exceptional wines, from multi-vineyard blends to single-vineyard selections. Their commitment to quality and respect for the terroir have garnered praise from critics worldwide.
