The Hemel-en-Aarde Valley is a beautiful, cool, maritime appellation that yields some of the best Chardonnay in South Africa. These wines have incredible finesse, balance and depth, proudly holding their own in the international arena.
Atarazia 2009 Chardonnay was produced in a minimalist, non-interventionist winemaking approach and the result is a beautifully focused wine that manages to be both subtle and intense. Its rich core is profound yet graceful and poised with expressive notes of grapefruit, white peach, ripe pear and grilled hazelnuts. Creaminess, intriguing complexity, and compelling intensity define this world-class Chardonnay.
