Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

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 emphasized 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.

Critical Acclaim

"Penley Estate's 2010 Aradia Chardonnay has aromas of peaches, ripe apple, baking bread and a whiff of pineapple. Medium to full bodied with plenty of expressive stone fruit flavor, it has a pleasantly silky texture and lively acid, finishing long."
88 Points

"Light yellow-gold. Pear, melon and smoky oak on the nose. A chewy, toasty midweight with nicely concentrated but somewhat rigid orchard fruit flavors and a touch of bitter lemon pith. Finishes with good length and cut, repeating the smoky note."
88 Points

"You live and learn: Aradia was a goddess, the daughter of the sun and the moon. The wine is full-flavoured, but not heavy or dull; no oak has been used, allowing the peach and stone fruit flavours free rein."
