Paradigm Hill Riesling 2012

This tiny estate is owned and run by George and Ruth Mihaly. The 10 acre estate is run in line with zero carbon emissions with everything being done by one or both of the husband and wife team.

Paradigm Hill Riesling 2012

I haven't tried a Riesling from the Mornington before and this one sticks out in term of texture and weight. It is a little stickier on the palate with the flavours of minerals, lemon grass, summer blossom and epsom salts providing a nice counter point to the heavy weight. The flavours slowly crawl along the long length in a glycerol style. The acidity isn't as high has I would have liked yet the wine is still balanced in a textural love me sooner style. All in all a very high quality wine with something different to offer than the normal Australian rizza.
