Building on the success of previous vintages, Ataraxia Chardonnay 2018 garnered 95 points from Tim Atkin MW for the second year running. An important element in the success of Ataraxia Chardonnay is the maritime influence on the Hemel-en-Aarde (Afrikaans for “Heaven on Earth”) region. This wine expresses that, and the stony, clay-rich Bokkeveld Shale soil. Made without malolactic fermentation and matured in 22% new wood, Ataraxia 2018 delivers “stony flavours of lemon zest, oatmeal and stone fruit” (Tim Atkin MW). In addition to the “complex, nuanced” notes, it also possesses the "structure and concentration" to age until 2028. Atkin sums it up with the words: “you know class when you taste it, and this is certainly that”.
