Food Pairings for Crystallum Sauvignon Blanc
Crystallum Wines is a boutique wine operation started by brothers Andrew and Peter-Allan Finlayson in 2007. Andrew and Peter-Allan are third generation wine producers, sons of South Africa‘s Pinot Noir and Chardonnay pioneer, Peter Finlayson. They are situated in the cool Walker Bay region, on South Africa's south coast around the town of Hermanus in the Hemel en Aarde valley. The cooler climate here ensures a longer growing season and a greater accumulation of flavour, and makes the region the most exciting in South Africa for Chardonay and Pinot Noir. A new straw bale winery is in the final stages of completion, in line with a focus on environmental sustainability. The winery has been built using recycled and natural materials, with a cellar that is as sustainable and environmentally sensitive as possible and a part of its majestic surroundings. Earth and mineral, the wine is boldly Sauvignon Blanc with initial green, grassy flavours followed by white pepper, ripe fig and melon fruit. A mineral quality adds terroir-driven complexity to the wine. A perfect balance between fruit and citrus acidity is accompanied by a fine spritz highlighting superbly maintained freshness. The finish is elegant, lengthy and persistent.
