'In the most accurate and faithful way possible, our unapologetically wooded white wine mirrors the terroir in which our Chardonnay vines are grown. In other words, it is an expression of the low vigour, stony, clay-rich Bokkeveld Shale derived soils and the heavily maritime-influenced climate.' – Winemaker

Tasting notes:
'You know class when you taste it, and this is certainly that. Deservedly established as one of South Africa's most consistently outstanding Chardonnays, this has the structure and concentration to age, with no malolactic at all, 22% new wood and complex, nuanced, stony flavours of lemon zest, oatmeal and stone fruit. Drink 2019-28.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2019, 95/100

About Ataraxia:
Ataraxia is located in the Hemel-en-Aarde region, beneath the Babylon’s Tower mountain range. It was founded in 2004 by Kevin and Hanli Grant in partnership with a few friends who collectively purchased the 47-hectare property. They describe their wines as having ‘incredible finesse, balance and depth’ and they hold their own in the international wine market.
