Peter-Allan Finlayson is the scion of one of the most famous and important families in the Cape wine industry – and he’s extremely talented in his own right, equally at home making Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Syrah and Chenin Blanc at Crystallum and Gabriëlskloof. Listen to us chat about why he studied philosophy and economics at university, why his first vintage was a disaster and the camaraderie of South Africa’s New Wave producers.
To read more about Peter-Allan, have a look at the Crystallum website. You can also follow the winery on Instagram @crystallumwines
