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 only raison d’etre of any blend is to express a style of wine. The antithesis is to construct a wine that is a considered (or worse, random) concoction of few or many grape varieties with little or no desire to achieve a stylistic expression. Blends are expressions of “where from” rather than “what from”. Ataraxia’s Serenity blend quietly exudes the confidence to whisper style through the expression of unique sites rather than shout brashness through winemaking excesses."
Light feathered game; Pheasant, partridge, and quail make great small roasts, served with simple accompaniments match well with classic fruity Syrah, or a New World Pinot Noir such as this one, a blend of both Syrah and Pinot Noir would be a lovely option.
