Crystallum is the incredible boutique winery project set up in South Africa's Hemel-en-Aarde valley by Peter-Allan and Andrew Finlayson, sons of the South African cool-climate pioneer Peter Finlayson.

The Hemel-en-Aarde valley might just be the most exciting terroir for cool-climate styles of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir anywhere on the planet. Close to the whale-watching paradise of Walker Bay, where freezing ocean currents keep the water too cold to swim, and the climate of this part of the Cape surprisingly fresh, the valley is heaven for Burgundian varieties.

Crystallum's wines are easily comparable to Premier Cru Burgundy, and the best new wave Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays of California and Oregon. But the value here is extraordinary - with Crystallum you'll pay less than half what you'd expect for equivalent quality from these more renowned regions.
