Ataraxia Sauvignon Blanc, Upper Hemel-en-Aarde, South Africa 2019
I discovered the wines of Ataraxia 5 years ago when I was staying in Hermanus. I organised a blind tasting of about 40 Sauvignon Blancs from South Africa’s top vineyards. There were 4 of us tasting and one wine stood out head and shoulders above the rest – Ataraxia Sauvignon Blanc from their vineyards in Walker Bay. This was just up the coast and was my next port of call to meet Kevin Grant, their renowned wine-maker – and so our relationship began.
I tasted the current vintage of the Sauvignon Blanc last week – it was in a word ‘sensational’ and more complex that other Sauvignon Blancs with an array of flavours - citrus, passion fruit, peaches and apricots with a finish that lingered and lingered. Lovely wine.
