Ataraxia’s Serenity blend quietly exudes the confidence to whisper style through the expression of unique sites rather than shout brashness through winemaking excesses. A finely scented, vibrant nose with dark berry fruit and intriguing mineral and spicy notes characterise this wine. Mouth-watering and deeply ripe and polished grape tannins are wrapped in an elegant structure that subtly occupies all corners of ones palate. Assertive, classic and lingering, it reflects the grasp of style and deft hand of its maker.
This Shiraz-based wine is a seamless blend of three classic Rhone varietals and because the emphasis is more on style than cultivar make-up, the remaining two are unnamed.

Ataraxia was founded in 2004. Husband and wife team, Kevin and Hanli, in partnership with a few friends, purchased 50 hectares of prime vineyard land. The landscape in which Ataraxia is situated, called The Skyfields is unique, lying as it does on the most elevated section of the Hemel-en-Aarde area. The vineyards are planted on some of the most spectacular terroirs South Africa has to offer.
