Ataraxia Under The Gavel Chardonnay 2013

Made from grapes sourced from a single south-facing vineyard on The Skyfields, home to Ataraxia in the Hemel-en-Aarde outside Hermanus. Intensely interventionist fruit selection was followed by an extremely non-interventionist winemaking approach. Fermented in small, tight grain French oak barriques, custom ordered from very specific Burgundian coopers, it was barrel aged for a further 9 months before being bottled. Tasting Notes: This wine is The Skyfields terroir in a bottle! It expresses the ancient soils and maritime influenced meso-climate of this specific vineyard. Reflecting the very best of New Word and Old World styles, the wine is signatured by minerality and effortlessly manages to be both subtle and intense. A complex, classy and pedigreed Chardonnay.
