Ataraxia Chardonnay 2007

Sourced from the same two vineyard sites along the R320, Hemel-en-Aarde as the Ataraxia CWG Chardonnay 2006 which, at last year’s CWG Auction, achieved the highest price for a case of white wine in the Auction’s history. Painstaking, interventionist fruit selection was followed by a minimalist, non-interventionist winemaking approach. This wine was 100% fermented and matured in French oak barrels (42% of which were new) made by personally selected coopers located solely in the Burgundy region of France. Fortnightly battonage was employed throughout the 10 month maturation period, during which time only partial malolactic fermentation was allowed to take place before being prepared for bottling.
