About this Item

Paul Sauer, 2012
3 (1 x 3) 1500ml
Often described as the South African equivalent of a Grand Cru or First Growth, Kanonkop Estate is situated on the Simonsberg mountain slopes on the outskirts of Stellenbosch. 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

'This brilliant Bordeaux blend of Cabernet Sauvignon with 15% each of Merlot and Cabernet Franc is always sourced from the same 40-year-old block on the farm. Leafy, floral and subtle, with notes of spice and cigar box, it carries its tannins lightly. A stunning Paul Sauer release. Drink: 2016-30' - Tim Atkin SA Wine Report 2016, 96/100
