Cape Winemakers Guild

Ataraxia Chardonnay 2010

Sourced from a singularly unique vineyard site in the upper Hemel-en-Aarde Valley. Intensely interventionist fruit selection was followed by an extreme non-interventionist winemaking approach. This wine was 100% fermented and matured in French oak barrels personally sourced from selected coopers in the Burgundy region of France. Fortnightly battonage was employed throughout the 9 month maturation period before the wine was carefully prepared for bottling. Tasting note: Made as a ?vin de terroir?, this wine reflects both the ancient soils and the heavily moderating maritime influenced meso-climate in which the vines grow and the fruit ripens. The result is a wine that reflects its New World provenance yet is Old World in stylistic leaning. Signatured by minerality, it effortlessly manages to be both subtle and intense on the nose and the palate. Classy and complex. Drink now and for the next 7 to 10 years.
