Patritti 2012 Adelaide Hills Arneis

Patritti is a family winemaking operation established in 1926 with what is now a massive range. The Patritti winery is in Dover Gardens and has been swallowed up by Adelaide suburbia but fruit is sourced from several South Australian regions with the family vineyards in McLaren Vale. This vibrant little Adelaide Hills arneis (a northern Italian grape) has to be one of the best wine bargains around right now. It is elegant with plenty of freshness and length - and extremely food friendly. It has amazingly impressive architecture for a wine that retails for just $14. Yes, you read that right. $14.
