The Helm crew – (L to R) – Ben, Stepanie & Ken Helm

After spending time with Ken Helm it is hard not to be enthused; after a tasting it is impossible not to become an ardent fan.

Wine Front – 2017 Helm Premium Riesling – Mike Bennie September 2017 – 96 Points, “This wine is made from a single vineyard, though could be from two plots on the estate, but only the best fruit source is chosen in best years. Only been made 11 times in the 40-odd years of Helm. Brilliant wine. Immediate impact of inward concentration of citrusy flavours, green cruncy apple juice, spice, mineral-like sparkle. It’s needle-like across the palate too – tight, bright, fine, slicing with its freshness. Pristine wine of quiet power and mouthwatering deliciousness. Benchmark stuff.”

Helm Wines was awarded a 5 star rating in 2018 James Halliday Wine Companion
