Hemel en Aarde | Crystallum Wines is a small, family run and privately owned winery based in the Walker Bay region of South Africa. The two Finlayson brothers are the third generation of Finlayson winemakers and the sons of the man who pioneered Pinot Noir making in the Hemel-en-Aarde valley. The Peter Max Pinot Noir is crafted from fruit sourced from four vineyards, three in the Hemel en Aarde area of Walker Bay and one on a high altitude, inland site. The vineyards form the perfect building blocks to reflect the outstanding vintage. The Cuvée Cinema Pinot Noir is produced from fruit grown from a single vineyard – one of the highest in the Hemel-en-Aarde region. This region is characterised by a moderate climate which results in delayed ripening and a late harvest. The soils are clay and shale in composition, which allows optimum fruit development while naturally restricting vigour and keeping crop levels low.
