Meerlust Red

This wine was produced in limited quantities from young vines on the historic Meerlust Estate and will benefit from further ageing.

The wine has an intense, dark purple colour with a violet rim; bright and vivacious in the glass, youthful.

The tannins are soft and silky, the acidity fresh, the flavour profile focused and linear.

The wine has a persistent and long-lasting aftertaste

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 winemaking tradition of his forefathers who acquired the farm in 1872.
