Overview

The objective of Aradia was to bring our Chardonnay into line with our core range, The Phoenix, Hyland, Condor and Gryphon both in terms of packaging and in wine style. This coincides with the requirement from the market for soft, fruity chardonnays with little obvious oak. Penley’s style showcases varietal fruit with soft, well balanced oak.

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

The colour is medium yellow with touches of grapey green.

Aroma

The aroma is emphasised by melon and fresh citrus fruits with a hint of soft French oak.

Palate

The flavours are smooth with lingering melon fruits and subtle oak enhancing the varietal flavours, without overpowering them. This chardonnay has been made to be crisp with fresh fruit characters and soft oak that will allow some maturation if required.

Wine Background

Aradia was a mythical goddess, daughter of the sun and the moon, two important elements in Penley’s winemaking abilities. The sun represents strength and

Australia’s ability to produce its unique style of wines through the suns capability to ripen during harvest. The moon effects our seasons which in turn affects our grape growing abilities. Aradia also represents the duality in Penley’s Tolley and Penfold family history.
