Paradigm Hill “Col’s Block” Mornington Peninsula Shiraz 2014

Standard

Paradigm Hill is a relatively new label for Tiger Wines – it’s a Halliday 5 Star winery located at Merricks on the Mornington Peninsula.

It’s possibly a new label to many of you too, so here’s Halliday’s introduction in the 2018 Halliday Wine Companion:

“ Dr George Mihaly (with a background in medical research, biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries) and wife Ruth ( a former chef and caterer) realised a 30-year dream of establishing their own vineyard and winery, abandoning their previous careers to do so. George had all the necessary scientific qualifications, and built on those by making the 2001 Merricks Creek wines, moving to home base at Paradigm Hill in ’02, all along receiving guidance and advice from Nat White of Main Ridge Estate. The vineyard, under Ruth’s control with advice from Shane Strange, is planted to 2.1 ha of pinot noir, 0.9ha of shiraz, 0.82ha of riesling and 0.38ha of pinot gris.”

…and a beautiful property it is too with one of the longest driveways I’ve seen since visiting some Scottish castles.

I’d like you to get to know some of the Paradigm Hill wines so the pricing on this is quite keen. RRP A$48, listed here at S$57 inc gst and delivery.

And just 12.4% alc…

Cheers
