Ataraxia Under The Gavel Chardonnay 2022
Wine of Origin Hemel-en-Aarde Ridge
- This single vineyard Chardonnay, made from organically grown grapes, revives a centuries old Burgundian winemaking “black” method.
- It was fermented spontaneously in custom ordered Burgundian barrels and without allowing the secondary malolactic fermentation to occur, which lends an arrestingly vibrant weight to the palate.
- The absence of bâtonnage adds focus and precision.
- The wine was bottled after 11 months of maturation.
Tasting Notes: A very individual and accurate articulation of Ataraxia’s “dirt”, this is a sublime wine which effortlessly balances fruit intensity with mineral acidity. A wine of pedigree and style.
Reading for drinking now until at least 2030.
