Penley Estate Chardonnay Aradia 2013

External Review:

Wine Tasting NotesThe Chardonnay is a stylish wine with soft, discernible fruit, clean acid and a subtle oak background. The complexity of flavor, oak and acid make this an excellent food wine. The aroma is emphasized by melon, grass, and tropical fruits with a hint of French oak. The flavors are soft and smooth with lingering melon characteristics. The oak is subtle but discernible, enhancing the wine without overpowering it. Drink now or cellar up to three years for additional complexity.
