Product description

ATARAXIA - Pinot Noir - 2017 - Kevin Grant - South-Africa

Ataraxia is Greek for "a serene state of mind, free of worries and concerns" and it lives up to the hype. Aptly named The Skyfields, Ataraxia Wines is perfectly positioned on an impressive hillside in the beautiful Hemel-and-Earth wine region.

A short distance from the coastal town of Hermanus lies the Heaven-and-Earth Valley, and the claim is justified. The Ataraxia estate sits on a particularly heavenly piece of land below a towering mountaintop of the Babylon Tower. In addition to its unrelenting beauty, Ataraxia is home to some of the most spectacular terroirs South Africa has to offer. The vineyards, with their proximity to the South Atlantic Ocean, elevated plantings and predominantly south-facing (cool) slopes create the ideal for growing cooler and climate-friendly grapes.

Characteristics of the wine

Grapes were hand-picked into small crates and then sorted, destemmed and gently crushed at the cellar. A 10 day pre-fermentation cold soak period in open fermenters was followed by a temperature-controlled ferment, peaking at 28°C for a total cuvaison of 22 days. The cap was gently punched down twice a day during alcoholic fermentation. The wine was then pressed and racked to carefully-selected French oak barrels, 20% of which were new and where 100% malolactic fermentation occurred. Then aged in barrels for 10 months before being bottled.

Wine Style

The wine has an intriguing luminous hue that reflects rather than absorbs light. The svelte nose offers up a fine blend of red cherries, pomegranate, delicate forest floor and a hint of spice and new oak. On the palate the wine is sensual and embracing, with a captivating mid- palate depth, lovely transparency and excellent focus on the suavely-tannic finish.
