About this Item

2015 Paul Sauer
1 (1 x 1) 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.

Paul Sauer is their internationally acclaimed, long-aging Bordeaux blend and the 2015 is the first wine from the ‘New World’ awarded 100 points by renowned critic Tim Atkin MW!

Critics Ratings

'A great wine, with a distinguished track record in one of the best-ever Cape vintages: if any South African wine deserves 100 points, and I strongly believe that it does, then it is the brilliant 2015 Paul Sauer, one of the greatest young wines I have ever tasted.’ - Tim Atkin SA Special Report 2018, 100/100

'Rightly regarded as SA ‘first growth’ Bordeaux blend, traditionally cab-based with merlot, cab franc; 70/15/15 in 2015 which, though less plush than 2014 in cooler summer, exudes a controlled opulence thanks to satisfying dry finish & firm tannic foundation for extended ageing.' - Platter's SA Wine Guide 2019, 5* (95/100)

'Sumptuous, luxurious nose with superb clarity of blackcurrant and cherry fruit. Fine vanilla essence on the palate and expertly crafted tannins. Really great purity and density, without being forced at all. There’s no doubt it is an exemplary vintage of a great Bordeaux blend, and its track record suggests it should age for decades, bringing out plenty more complexity.' - Richard Hemming MW, JancisRobinson.com, 17.5/20 (Sep 2018)
