Bone Fide Pinot Noir fra Crystallum har fået 93 point af Wine Advocate (reviewer Neal Martin), som skrev:
The 2012 Bona Fide Pinot Noir includes 20% whole cluster fruit and sees 30% new oak for 11 months. This has a much more voluptuous bouquet compared to the Cuvee Cinema -11 with plenty of vivacious red currant and raspberry scents. The palate is very well-balanced with fine acidity and lovely rounded, clean pure strawberry fruit that have a slightly creamy texture. What a beautiful, composed, delicious Pinot Noir. Drink now-2018.
Sometimes you meet a young winemaker whose enthusiasm and approach makes an impression. That is not to say that their wines knock your socks off, but rather you intuitively feel that they are -one to watch,- perchance a -star of the future.- Certainly, when I met Peter-Allan Finlayson in Hemel-en-Aarde in 2011, he came across as a talented winemaker. Though his first releases were a little -hit and miss- or more accurately -trial and error,- his 2012s demonstrated how far he has come in a short time. There was a sense of assuredness in these excellent Pinot Noirs that have stepped up a gear. Crystallum is relatively unknown compared to Hamilton Russell or Bouchard-Finlayson?but I have no doubt that Peter-s wines will become increasingly sought after both home and abroad.
Dette er blot en af Peter-Allan Finlayson’s top vine. Udover Bone Fide Pinot Noir, fremstiller han også Peter Max Pinot Noir, Cuvee Cinema Pinot Noir, The Agnes Chardonnay, Clay Shales Chardonnay og Paradisium.
