2020 Chardonnay from Ataraxia
'Unequivocally one of the best in South Africa - very Burgundian in style, seriously up there at Premier Cru level'
Today we are delighted to offer a real Bancroft favourite, the exceptional 2020 Chardonnay from South African icon Ataraxia.
Kevin Grant is one of only a handful of true Chardonnay specialists in South Africa. Consistently ‘one of the Cape’s best Chardonnays’, says Tim Atkin, it tops the charts in South African tastings.
Scoring 94 points from Tim Atkin, the heavily maritime-influenced climate shines through in this very refreshing and ‘stylishly wooded’ 2020 Chardonnay with the ‘concentration to age’. Chiselled and energetic, it manages to be both subtle and intense offering hints of white peach and sun-warmed tropical fruits.
A wine which rivals ‘a very good Côte de Beaune Burgundy’ at a fraction of the price, it is hardly surprising that Ataraxia Chardonnay is one of the most popular New World whites in our portfolio. The 2020 is another classic rendition of this very focused and elegant style.
Take advantage of our special offer and fill up your wine rack with this outstanding Chardonnay – enjoy over the year ahead and beyond.
