2012 Paradigm Hill Les cinq Mornington Peninsula Australia Pinot Noir

13.8% alc, pH 3.69, TA 0.67.Clone 115. Harvest Brix 24.5ยบ. 4-day cold soak, 5-day fermentation, 6-day post maceration. Aged 18 months in 33% new French oak barrels. Winemaker is George Mihaly. · Moderately dark reddish purple color in the glass. Enticing scents of cherry, plum and rose petal lead to a mid weight attack of tasty plum, dark cherry and dark raspberry fruits that hint at a bit of confection. Very charming with balanced tannins and some finishing length. Delicious two days later from a previously opened and re-closed bottle. Score: 92. Reviewed September 14, 2014
