Allesverloren: For the Love of Wine

Words: Crush

Allesverloren is one of the oldest wine estates in the Swartland. Current owner and cellar master Danie Malan is the fifth generation Malan on the estate.

Location and Terroir

The vineyards creep up the imposing Kasteelberg in the scenic Riebeek Valley. The region’s meso-climate provides the ideal conditions for creating big, robust red wines.

The soils on the farm are a mixture of shale and weathered sandstone, which is crucial to the particular character of Allesverloren wines, and result in deeply coloured, powerful wines with an excellent concentration of fruit.

The Wines

Allesverloren is renowned for its Portuguese varietals, fortified wines and full-bodied reds, made in the traditional Old-World style.

Wines with depth, character and ageing potential that are sure to impress any discerning wine lover.


The estate has expanded their range to include a Tinta Rosé and Chenin Blanc. Perfectly chilled, these wines are ideal to beat the South African heat this summer.

For the Love of Wine: Rosé or Chenin?

Allesverloren Tinta Rosé is a refreshing blush wine with an alluring nose of strawberries and raspberries. The wine has a fresh taste of raspberries and cherries, with a hint of vanilla that lingers on the palate.


Allesverloren Chenin Blanc is the first white wine in the estate’s range. The wine is brilliantly clear with a green tinge. It has subtle nuances of lead pencil, yellow apple and lime on the nose and on the palate, this medium-bodied wine shows flavours of ripe stone fruit. It has great balance of acidity with an elegant finish.

Whether you prefer a refreshing Rosé or a crisp Chenin in your glass, Allesverloren has you covered.

Allesverloren wines are available leading supermarkets and wine retailers across South Africa, or online from Norman Goodfellows. | Facebook  | Twitter | Instagram
