Paul Sauer, 1999
12 (1 x 12) 750ml

Owned by the fourth generation Krige family, Abri Beeslaar is their long-term winemaker who has won International Winemaker of the year an incredible 3 times.
This internationally acclaimed, long-ageing Bordeaux blend was named after former owner, Paul Sauer, and was first made in 1981.

Critics Ratings

'Legend In its own time, Cape classic in its own right. Bordeaux-style blend from low-yielding 30 year old vines, 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10 % each Cabernet Franc and Merlot, traditionally vinified in open fermenters, ±2 years new French oak. 99 will excite Eurocentric palates too: arresting 'cool' bouquet of pencil shavings, forest-floor fruits in youthful restraint of quite the most gorgeous soft tannins. 3500 cases' - Platter's SA Wine Guide 2003, 4.5*

'Amazing bright ruby red colour introduce a nose that holds leafy undertones to astonishingly fresh red fruit and graphite. Feminine, yet not light - typical Bordeaux blend profile and Paul Sauer class. Elegant, lean, classic, bright and moreish' - Higgo Jacobs 2011, 95/100
