Ataraxia: 'A serene state of mind free from worry and preoccupation'.


The implication must be that Kevin Grant's wines aim for the divine and deliver an experience that soothes and relaxes. Not wrong.


His 2017 Chardonnay is tight and dry, but with such richness and poise. It's going to be really hard to keep a wine like this - it tastes SO good. But if you were to keep in for a few years, as you might with er.... Hamilton-Russell Chardonnay for instance, you might discover further dimension to the Ataraxia experience. Thoroughly good wine.
