Ataraxia, Sauvignon Blanc 750ml 2020South Africa, Hemel-en-Aarde
'Our cool-climate, alchemy-free unwooded white wine celebrates the virtues of elegance, vivacity and finesse. Most importantly, the Sauvignon Blanc grape is merely the chosen vehicle to express the free-draining Table Mountain Sandstone and Cape Granite soils on which the vines are planted.' – Winemaker
Tasting notes on the previous 2019 vintage:
'Kevin Grant's Sauvignon Blanc doesn't generate as much praise as his Chardonnay, but it's very enjoyable in its own way and a cut above the run-of-the-mill expressions of the grape in South Africa. Grapefruit, elderflower and sea breeze notes combine to appealing effect here. Drink 2020-22.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2020, 91/100
Ataraxia is located in the Hemel-en-Aarde region, beneath the Babylon’s Tower mountain range. It was founded in 2004 by Kevin and Hanli Grant in partnership with a few friends who collectively purchased the 47-hectare property. They describe their wines as having ‘incredible finesse, balance and depth’ and they hold their own in the international wine market.
