2018 Pinot Noir 'L'ami Sage'

2018 Pinot Noir 'L'ami Sage'

Paradigm Hill
Regular price $69.00

It has often been said, great wine is made in the vineyard – and this is why George Mihaly believes that his terroir is so vitally important to the wines character. He has just over 10 acres of north facing gently sloping vineyard. The philosophy of his wine making is to guide the wine with minimal intervention through the vinification process – and this is how George believes that he can maximize the varietal character from the terroir, for each of his wines. The fruit is picked by loving hands, with vintage being a time for celebration. 

Paradigm Hill has committed themselves to achieving a zero carbon foot print from the activities at winery. In addition to having been their own “Carbon Cops” and audited and then reviewed all their energy consumption, George has also installed a substantial 132 panel, 30kWh Photo Voltaic Cell [PV Cell] system that is rated to generate about 40+ Mega Watt Hours of electricity per year.

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' yet exhibiting both subtlety and power. The fine, abundant tannin structure builds on the palate and there is generosity, together with a long complex and balanced fresh finish.
