Peter and Max are the first names of the growers who supplied the fruit for the first vintage of this wine. The fruit sources have since changed but the name remains to honour the beginnings of Crystallum's multi-vineyard Pinot Noir blend. Grapes for the Crystallum Peter Max Pinot Noir 2022 were naturally fermented with 50% of the fruit de-stemmed and the remainder left as whole clusters. Extraction is kept to a minimum during active fermentation with a total time of 4 weeks on the skins. Residual sugar 2.8 g/l. Bottled at 13.5%. (Bottle size 750ml)

Nose: A slightly more savoury and distinctly Burgundian expression featuring enhanced earthiness from cloves and tree bark.

Palate: The red fruits are there in abundance, most notably wild strawberries and rhubarb, while there is a red apple skin quality to the tannins.

Finish: The finish is all crushed mulberries and salted cherries, adding a moreishness that makes the wine dangerously drinkable in spite of its ageing potential.
