MENU’s Wine of the Week. Ataraxia Chardonnay 2017

It has golden fruit on the nose with white peach, golden oak, some citrus and is very, very elegant. It has a lovely texture, clean citrus and more white peach on the palate, with white Bing cherry; long flavours with the perfume of peach remaining. Superb and priced at R265 from the farm
We cannot tell you how difficult it was to choose a wine of the week this week. We were at the Pinot Noir Celebration in Hemel and Aarde this weekend and tasted many, many superb wines. But this one lingers on the taste memory. We had it at Ataraxia with winemaker  Kevin Grant and it so impressed us. Kevin also has a 2017 Pinot Noir that is as good. You can read about it and the other wines in our many articles published this week about the Pinot Noir Celebration. Superb
