Tasting Notes

  • GDH

    Goedhuis, June 2020

    This Chardonnay is produced from vines planted nearly 400 metres above sea-level. The cooler climate and ancient glacial soils give a wine that echoes its Burgundian counterparts. The 2018 is chiselled and racy, echoing a Puligny or chalky Chablis in style. The nose is packed with fresh citrus and juicy stone fruits and the palate has weighty breadth.

    Score: 95

    You know class when you taste it, and this is certainly that. Deservedly established as one of South Africa's most consistently outstanding Chardonnays, this has the structure and concentration to age, with no malolactic at all, 22% new wood and complex, nuanced, stony flavours of lemon zest, oatmeal and stone fruit.

Producer

Ataraxia

Located in the Hemel-en-Aaarde region (heaven on earth), this boutique winery was established in 2004 by Kevin and Hanli Grant. Together they craft high-quality, artisanal wines from a beautiful stretch of vines sandwiched between the Babylon’s Tower mountain range and the South Atlantic Ocean. The name Ataraxia is Greek for ‘tranquillity’ and, for winemaker Kevin, this is the feeling drinking a great wine should inspire. The cooler climate and ancient glacial soils give New World wines with a stylistic nod to the Old World.

Region

Hemel-en-Aarde

The Hemel-en-Aarde Valley is a ward within the Walker Bay district of South Africa. Meaning 'Heaven on Earth', this beautiful valley has the Cape's highest proprtion of Pinot Noir. Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc also flourish here thanks to the cooling influence of the Atalantic to the South and the Babylon mountains to the North. Ancient glacial soils make this region a geological wonder capable of producing hugely complex wines.
