Third generation Burgundian varietal specialists working with the ideal, cooler climate conditions that make South Africa's Walker Bay the source of some of the countries most exquisite pinots and chardonnays. Crystallum's ethos strikes a balance between old-world methods and traditions whilst staying in tune with the vineyards they source from.

In the Bona Fide, this means spontaneous fermentation with no commercial yeasts added. Here, too, a 40% whole bunch component with the rest de-stemmed but left intact as whole berries. Eleven months in French Oak barriques. However, now ten years on, bright cassis, cherry notes, spice and slight smokiness have evolved and complexified into something even more intriguing -- a pinot the Burgundophile will find much to rejoice about.

"From a vineyard conjoining Bouchard-Finlayson with 40% whole-bunch and raised in 20% new oak, the 2013 Bona Fide Pinot Noir has a more laconic bouquet than the Cuvée Cinema with more tertiary scents of black bramble fruit, wild hedgerow and hints of marmalade loitering in the background. The palate is medium-bodied with edgy tannins, good depth and plenty of Pinot energy that illuminates the finish that is probably the most supple of the all the 2013 cuvées. Excellent." 92 points, The Wine Advocate
