Allesverloren Shiraz 1998

Malan describes this as a generous, mouth-filling and intensely coloured wine that shows ripe berry fruits and traces of raisin on the nose combined with notes of black pepper, spice and wood smoke. He says the wood has integrated very harmoniously with the fruit to produce an elegant wine with a lingering aftertaste. He recommends serving it with poultry, veal and red meat dishes or savouring it on its own.
