Greek for “a serene state of mind, free from worry and preoccupation”, Ataraxia lives up to the hype. Established in 2004, Ataraxia is a boutique winery located in the scenic area of Walker Bay in South Africa. The idea for the winery was conceptualised when a couple purchased 50 hectares of vineyards along with their friends. The soil quality and the climate of these vineyards were perfect for growing the choicest quality of grapes.
The Sauvignon Blanc varietals grown here are extremely pure and pungent, but they don’t compromise on their fruity accents and aromas, and this expertly crafted example 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.
Tasting Note: Lively acidity and classy structure underpin pungent citrus fruit, gooseberry and grassy aromas, culminating in a wine of great poise, length and charm.
