Greek for “a serene state of mind, free from worry and preoccupation”, Ataraxia lives up to the hype.
Made using uncomplicated (not simple) winemaking techniques, this is an athletic, chiseled and precise wine. It embraces the very adult tastes of salinity, brininess and minerality. Unapologetically oaked chardonnay.
Ataraxia Pinot Noir
This wooded red is made from a grape which is arguably the most suited of any variety to express terroir and sense of place. Grown on low-vigour, stony, clay-rich Bokkeveld Shale derived soils, the maritime-influenced climate is so marked that Ataraxia’s Pinot noirs are the very last to be picked in the Hemel-en-Aarde.
