Description

Full bodied, deep ruby red colour. A combination of the varietals gives you more than the sum of the parts. Very complex bouquet with black currant, red berry, mocha and spicy flavours. Big structured wine with a refined line of elegance.

Kanonkop Paul Sauer 2015 Tops Tim Atkin Report with First 100pt Rating For South African Wine
“Kanonkop Paul Sauer 2015 is the first South African wine to receive 100pts in the annual report on the South African wine industry by respected British wine judge, journalist and critic Tim Atkin MW. For his seventh South African report, which has just been released, Atkin tasted 1 985 wines from throughout the country, with Kanonkop’s iconic Bordeaux-style blend achieving the highest score… Read more here.”

2018 NEAL MARTIN REPORT
“The 2015 Paul Sauer spent five days on the skins and matured for 24 months in new 225-liter French oak (medium toast.) I tasted this both sighted and then blind. It has a sophisticated bouquet of blackberry, raspberry coulis, cedar, sage and mint, perhaps demonstrating a little more precision than the 2014 Paul Sauer. The palate is medium-bodied with rounded tannin, touches of blackberry, raspberry, sage, white pepper and pencil lead. This is quite an intellectual Paul Sauer, and one of the most complex I have encountered, showing real refinement and depth toward the persistent finish. It will benefit from another year or two in bottle, but what an impressive wine!”

2018 NEAL MARTIN REPORT
“The 2014 Paul Sauer is Kanonkop’s top cuvée and was matured for 24 months in new French barriques. It has an intense bouquet of blackberry, raspberry and mint mixed with sage and oregano. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained tannin; the oak is well integrated, and there is a satisfying rondeur and harmony toward the elegant, lightly spiced, quite persistent finish. Always one of the Cape’s most impressive reds, the 2014 shows its class.”
