Chardonnay, Ataraxia 2018
Kevin Grant is one of only a handful Chardonnay specialists in South Africa. Bright yellow straw in appearance. White flowers and vanilla cream on the nose, with neatly integrated toasty oak characters.
This Chardonnay has been known to top the charts in many a South African Chardonnay tasting, and rightly so with its chiselled, focused style. It manages to be both subtle and intense, with hints of sun-warmed tropical fruits, gentle peach and vanilla.
The wine has a fresh palate on entry with crisp acidity and subtle tropical notes.
