Ataraxia Chardonnay 2018
By Christian Eedes, 23 March 2020
Kevin Grant of Hemel-en-Aarde Ridge property Ataraxia has long had a reputation for making high-quality Chardonnay but the 2018 is the most impressive in a while. Intense citrus plus a hint of appealing yeasty character on the nose follows through to a palate that displays concentrated fruit and a lovely line of acidity – refreshing yet not too aggressive. Very well balanced with a long and savoury finish. “On point” is an Americanism I’m not particularly fond of but this really is. Price: R330 a bottle.
CE’s rating: 93/100.
