Kevin Grant's Ataraxia Pinot Noir 2014: First release now on sale

In a first from Kevin Grant since leaving Hamilton-Russell and starting Ataraxia, the hotly anticipated inaugural Ataraxia Pinot Noir 2014 is now on release for sale.

When we first tasted this wine late last year on a rare visit from Kevin to the office, the room went silent, and chins grazed the floor. We were all blown away by what was in our glasses. 
"The wine has an intriguing luminous hue that reflects rather than absorbs light. The svelte nose offers up a fine blend of red cherries, pomegranate, delicate forest floor and a hint of spice and new oak. On the palate the wine is sensual and embracing, with a captivating mid - palate depth, lovely transparency and excellent focus on a suavely tannic finish."
