The farm was named in 1704 when the settlers returned from an arduous journey to find their livestock gone and their home burnt down - hence the name Allesverloren meaning "all is lost". Present Owner, Danie Malan is the fifth generation on the farm, continuing the pioneering winemaking tradition of his forefathers who acquired the farm in 1872. The Malan family has been making this now legendary fortified wine, made of traditional Portuguese varieties, for the past four decades. Appreciate the wood aroma with nut and raisin berry undertones, accentuated with the creamy soft taste of ripe fruit.
Nestled in the heart of the Cape Winelands, we select only the finest grapes from vineyards on both the Eastern and Western side of Stellenbosch, to produce superb quality wines.
Our Chenin d' Muscat shows a proud end of harvest product (still under original 1928 label design) stylishly crafted from Chenin Blanc and a touch of Muscat d"Alexandrie, fermented and thereafter aged for 12 months in French oak barrels.
This wine shows layers of spicy apricto, peach and honeycomb flavours - concentrated to a well rounded palate and a long aftertaste of zesty fruit.
This truly traditional fortified wine was crafted by hand-picking, foot-stomping, unfiltered-passion. Touriga Nacional and South Africa's own Pintoage join forces to produce this structured delight offering warm, complete flavours. For utmost pleasure it must be enjoyed with friend or foe, in a crowd or alone.
