Ataraxia Under The Gavel Chardonnay 2018

Once again sourced from a single, cool, south-facing vineyard on The Skyfields, home to Ataraxia, located in the Hemel-en-Aarde outside the Atlantic coastal town of Hermanus. Painstaking fruit selection at harvest was followed by an extreme non-interventionist winemaking approach. Fermented entirely in small, tight-grain French oak barrels, custom ordered from selected Burgundian coopers, this wine was barrel aged for a further nine months before being bottled.

Tasting Notes: Inspired by the mantra “Terroir can be found by anybody who would care to look for it”; this wine is the purest expression of Ataraxia’s dirt (soil). Broad-shouldered, yet undeniably athletic.
