About

Paradigm Hill is owned by Ruth Mihaly [viticulturist] and George Mihaly [winemaker], with the 10 acre vineyard planted in 1999/2000 in the cooler climate region of the Mornington Peninsula.

The north facing gently sloping vineyard has very low density planting of only 500 vines per acre grafted onto vigour and phylloxera resistant rootstock. The trellis runs north-south with vines trained to VSP and a keen eye on ensuring a balanced vine. We are committed to using only estate grown grapes for on site production of pinot noir, shiraz, pinot gris and riesling. The vision for our four wines…. Achieve purity of varietal expression for each of our four wines whilst reflecting the distinction of our terroir.

Paradigm Hill Pinot Noir Les cinq
Paradigm Hill Pinot Noir Les cinq

Always the prettiest and most elegant of our three pinot noir wines, Les cinq nonetheless expresses hallmark intensity of fine savoury earthy flavours. There are layers of red fruits and spice adding to complexity of character.

Paradigm Hill Shiraz Col's Block
Paradigm Hill Shiraz Col's Block

As we are located in a cool climate region, our Shiraz grapes ripen very slowly and late into autumn. This leads to a Shiraz style that has enticing and complex spice aromas, layers of toasty mocha and a palate that is elegant yet intense.

Paradigm Hill Transition Rosé
Paradigm Hill Transition Rosé

Carefully selected shiraz fruit was crushed and allowed to soak on skins for about 8 hours before pressing. The approach to making this wine is the same as for Pinot Gris with cooled ferments in Vosges-forest-sourced oak barrels [25% new].

Paradigm Hill Pinot Noir L’ami Sage
Paradigm Hill Pinot Noir L’ami Sage

L’ami sage has more palate intensity with enticing, darker red fruit aromas followed by the expected savoury, fleshy and earthy character. Always showing a bit more assertiveness on the palate with a tad more richness than Les Cinq.

Paradigm Hill Pinot Gris
Paradigm Hill Pinot Gris

Paradigm Hill Pinot Noir Adesso
Paradigm Hill Pinot Noir Adesso

As many will recall, this is the happy result of "an experiment gone right" and just the third release of the wine! It was left in barrel for 18 months to evolve and mature but it was only after 10 months that we added some preservative.
