    In a few words ...

    Crescendo 2019 is a fine tribute to the terroir from which its grapes come, and is particularly characteristic of wine made in the historic Stellenbosch region. This is particularly true of Cabernet Franc, whose purity of fruit is amplified by the site on which it is grown. Complex yet delicious aromas delight the senses. The wine's tension lends itself to an elegant finish, bringing together the different elements in a refined way to achieve a well-polished wine.

    Absolutely exquisite. Velvety on the palate, with notes of ripe black fruit, violets and wood. A touch of terroir salinity and perfect balance. A rival to some of the best Bordeaux! One of my best discoveries of the year.

    Magnificent South African wine, full-bodied and powerful, with notes of ripe fruit. Beautiful persistence on the palate. Still a little young, to be cellared to appreciate its full potential. A wonderful discovery!

    Worthy of a great Bordeaux. A great discovery and a favorite! Fiery when young, but with great ageing potential. I'm going to let a few bottles age to appreciate it with more wisdom.

    excellent concentration and an infant right now. it will mature to become a superb wine so several bottles should be forgotten in the cellar.

    Nothing to envy a Pauillac! Black fruit (blackcurrant), leather, tobacco and vanilla notes. A very nice surprise. Aerate at least 2 hours before tasting.
