About this Item

Paul Sauer, 2005
6 (1 x 6) 750ml

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

‘The 2005 Paul Sauer offers an exuberant bouquet with dried prune, licorice, a touch of caramel and fig that just soars from the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with a harmonious, focused opening. The tannins lend the 2005 a firm structure, but there is plenty of fruit to back it up and the finish fans out with luscious licorice, sea salt and black fruits that linger. Superb. Drink 2014-2025.’ - Neal Martin, Robertparker.com, 93/100 (2013)

 ‘Confident, refined 05, 70% cab with equal merlot/cab f spent 2 yrs in new casks after traditional ferm in open kuipe. Seductive cedar, spice & richly layered fruit will appeal to eager audience, as will plush, lengthy finish. 14.5% alc. 2008 Calyon trophy for 04.’ - Platter’s SA Wine Guide, 4.5* (2009)
