Arrivo Adelaide Hills Nebbiolo

The notorious heatwave of 2008 has produced a rounder and more drying expression of Arrivo, but it has done nothing to interrupt the beautiful varietal expression of this benchmark nebbiolo. Rose petal, potpourri, liquorice and blueberries are kept in line by firm, fine tannins and vibrant acidity. $48 at www.arrivo.com.au
