I just realized how to sort this out; so sharing the update...
I think there's no manual restore from iCloud and the only way is to go to Settings>General>Reset>Erase All Content & Settings and start over from the Set up iPhone screen and choose "Restore from iCloud Backup"
Given that I upgraded to iOS6 in the meantime, I can now see my recent backup I was after.
