The name Ataraxia is "a term used to describe emotional tranquillity" explains Kevin. His approach to winemaking is minimalist and non-interventionist, geared to reflect a sense of place and expression of terroir. The Sauvignon Blanc favours minerality ahead of pure, pungent fruit, but still shows hints of passionfruit and citrus as well as green melon aromas. The Chardonnay is 100% barrel fermented and is Old World in style. It has been known to top the charts in many a South African Chardonnay tasting, and rightly so. a chiselled, focused wine that effortlessly manages to be both subtle and intense, it whispers hints of sun-warmed tropical fruits, gentle peach and vanilla.
The Pinot Noir is all class, and priorities savoury characters over fruitiness, but coming through on the finish with lovely sweet red cherry and plum skins. Serenity rounds off this fantastic four, and what a treat it is! Kevin has made this wine to represent `the Pinotage family tree`, and his intention is to dispell the unfair taboo around South Africa`s own red grape variety, and to prove that Pinotage can be responsible for great wines. A blend of around 50% Pinotage, 25% Pinot Noir and 25% Cinsault, this is a complex, smoky, grown-up wine, bound to make the cynics think twice before judging Pinotage unworthy again.
