This majestic estate of Taaibosch Wines is situated at the foot of the Helderberg Mountain, with panoramic views stretching to Cape Point, Table Mountain, and the Stellenbosch Hills. Here the vineyards are planted at an altitude of 400 meters above sea level and with a direct South West facing to False Bay. It is this unique positioning which provides these vineyards with the required cooling influence for optimal ripening during the summer months.
The Crescendo is a true reflection of the terroir from which its grapes originate, and its particularly characteristic of wine made in the historic region of Stellenbosch. It is the Cabernet Franc in particular, where purity of the fruit is amplified by the site on which it is grown. Notes of white pepper, cloves, and red berries give this wine delightful aromatics to pleasure the senses. The tension in the wine lends itself to an elegant finish, bringing together the various elements in a genteel fashion culminating in a well-polished wine.
Vine age: 20 years or older.
