Strauss & Co is proud to offer South Africa’s most iconic red wine - Kanonkop Paul Sauer - over 3 decades in two rare, large format verticals. ‘This is one of the most impressive collections of South African wine I have ever seen.

Not only will this provide extraordinary drinking on many occasions, but the collection also offers fine investment potential’ says Roland Peens CEO of Wine Cellar, Strauss & Co Fine Wine Auction partners
