    Winemaker's Notes:

    Aradia History: 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.

    The Wine: This chardonnay has been made to be crisp with fresh fruit characters and soft oak that will allow some maturation if required. The color is medium yellow with touches of grapey green. The aroma is emphasised by melon and fresh citrus fruits with a hint of soft French oak. The flavors are smooth with lingering melon fruits and subtle oak enhancing the varietal flavors, without overpowering them. The 2008 vintage has produced a stylish and elegant cool climate chardonnay.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Light gold-colored, it displays a nose of toast, baking spices, poached pear, and apple. Medium to full-bodied, it has plenty of fruit, savory flavors, lively acidity, and good balance with the oak well integrated.
