In order to purchase tools or attend church, they had to undertake a long and arduous wagon journey along primitive roads to Stellenbosch. It was on their return from one such journey in 1704 that the settlers found their house burnt to the ground and the farm destroyed. Hence the estate's sad name, "Allesverloren", which means "all is lost".
Produced from a combination of traditional Port varietals. Note the toasty wood on the nose with nutty and raisin berry undertones followed by a creamy, soft palate of ripe fruit.
