Overview

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 biscuity and nutty complexes achieved by aging on yeast lees and the use of soft French oak.

Palate

A finely layered palate with harmonious and sensuous flavours of melons and grapefruit. The subtle oak enhances the varietal flavours without overpowering them and leads to a silky soft finish.

Cellaring Potential

The oak is minimal but discernible and will aid maturation if required. Best enjoyed for next 1 to 3 years.

Wine Background

Aradia was a mythical goddess, daughter of the sun and the moon, two important elements in Penleys 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.
