This small winery was established in 2007 by brothers Peter-Allan and Andrew Finlayson. Their father, Peter, was a pioneer in the production of cool climate Chardonnay and Pinot Noir at Bouchard Finlayson, so after university it seemed the natural thing for the boys to return home and source some fruit from the Hemel-en-Aarde valley to start their own label. Crystallum is now one of the most highly regarded wineries in South Africa, yet the Finlaysons are determined to make even better wines. Peter-Allan has sourced fruit from some new vineyards, while winemaking has evolved. All of the wines are now fermented using indigenous yeasts and new oak has been reduced to help the bright fruit shine through. A pioneer in the production of cool climate Pinot Noir at Bouchard Finlayson. A bold and elegant Pinot Noir with aromas of cherry and sweet spice on the nose. The palate offers plenty of juicy fruit, tempered by the wine’s refreshing acidity and silky texture.
