Taaibosch Crescendo 2019

Taaibosch Crescendo 2019

R380,00

‘Could Schalk-Willem Joubert do it again in 2019 after such an impressive maiden release? You bet he could and he has even improved on that predecessor. This is more precise and nuanced, presenting a seamless assemblage of Cabernet Franc with 26% Merlot and 9% Cabernet Sauvignon from the windy western corner of the Helderberg. Complex, layered and restrained, with perfumed 35% new wood, graphite, red berry, blackcurrant leaf and tarragon flavours and fresh, sea breeze-kissed finish.’ – Tim Atkin

More Information

In the cellar

The wine is matured in a combination of 225 liters oak barrels, 9000 liters Foudre vessels and traditional 4500 liters cement tanks for a period of three years. These different vessels each add a multitude of elements to the wine, ranging from fruity character to subtle wood influences. These elements are brought selectively together to form a harmonious whole, during the winemaking process.

In the vineyard

All grapes on the estate are hand-picked. Once received in the cellar, the grapes are gently transferred by means of gravity to both stainless steel and cement vessels for fermentation. A period of cold soaking follows, which enables rich extraction of colour, elegant aromas and bright flavour. Extended maceration follows at the conclusion of fermentation, which assists in providing the wine with soft texture, increased colour intensity and complexity.

Ageing

This wine can be enjoyed now, however, it will age beautifully for the 20 years from the date of vintage, if stored in the correct conditions.

Food Pairing

This wine can be enjoyed on its' own, however, it pairs beautifully with red meat dishes.

Awards and Recognition

About the Wine Estate

Taaibosch, previously known as Cordoba, is located on the slopes of the Helderberg Mountain in Stellenbosch. The unique position of the 59-hectare estate provides ideal conditions for growing Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. At an altitude of 300 metres above sea level, the vineyards benefit from the gentle cooling sea breezes. Cellar master Schalk-Willem Joubert crafts these exceptional wines. The farm follows a traditional hands-on approach to winemaking, focuses on sustainability and is organic in conversion.
