Chardonnay Ataraxia 2018
Kevin Grant is something of a Chardonnay specialist, honing his skills as chief winemaker at Hamilton Russell, who we visited on our South Africa tour in 2017. His vineyards are in ‘The Skyfields’, this is not a James Bond movie set but should be: petrified sand dunes beneath the soaring Babylons Toren mountain range. This barrel fermented Chardonnay has white flowers and vanilla cream on the nose, with neatly integrated toasty oak characters, and hints of sun-warmed tropical fruits, and ripe peaches. It regularly comes out top in South African Chardonnay tastings.
A powerful wine like this is a perfect match for powerful umami flavours – truffles and lobster come to mind. Teddington Cheese’s Gorwydd Caerphilly is a wonderful match.
Joint winner of the Best White Wine Trophy in the 2020 Wine Merchants Awards.
