Let me know if you would like me to get hold of a later vintage of this lovely wine; I've run out of the 2016
The 2015 Ataraxia Chardonnay was very popular with customers (and me!). This new vintage is equally good. When you smell the wine you expect to taste something old and very rich because of the complexity of aromas - white flowers, stone & citrus fruits, flinty minerality and a hint of biscuit. But on the palate the refreshing acidity and a silky texture prevent the wine being too heavy and rich. The wine manages to combine the complexity of flavours with the crisp acidity. The sharp citrus and almost unripe peach flavoiurs cut through a hint of creamy butteriness leading to a citrus finish with a hint of almond & marzipan. It's lovely.
Like many Chardonnays this wine will work well with richer dishes such as foie gras, chicken, ham, pork or veal in creamy sauces, parmesan cheese, mushrooms and truffles. But it is light enough not to overpower lighter dishes such as fish, seafood and chicken
Beautiful South African Chardonnay which is lovely and silky but not at all heavy. Floral, fruity with some spice from the oak and a flinty minerality; it has it all. Lovely!
