2018 Sweet Wine Report - 90 Points

Allesverloren, situated on the south-eastern slopes of the Kasteelberg near Riebeek West, is the oldest estate in the Swartland Wine of Origin district and is renowned for its red wines and port. The farm, which dates back to 1704, began producing wine exactly one century later. In 1872 Allesverloren was acquired by Daniel Francois Malan and has remained in the Malan family for five generations. Current owner, Danie Malan and his late father, Fanie, were among the wine pioneers of the Swartland, ably demonstrating the outstanding wine growing potential of what
was once considered the breadbasket of the Cape.

in the vineyard : The Red Muscadel grapes were selected from a single high-yielding vineyard. The trellised and drip irrigated vines grown at the foot of the Kasteelberg mountain, profit from its shadow to quickly cool down after a hot Swartland day, ensuring a well- balanced pH, acidity and sugar level for harvesting. The wine will age well for at least 25 to 40 years.

about the harvest: Only the finest grapes were selected and harvested at 26˚ Balling.

in the cellar : The grapes lay in open fermenters, with intense pump-overs for maximum extraction prior to fortification. Fortification was done by means of neutral spirits, where the juice was racked off the grapes and pumped into the alcohol.
