Helm Classic Dry Riesling 2017


94 Points, Mike Bennie, Wine Front, “Classic is made from four distinct vineyards, all within about 1000 metres of the winery. The 41st vintage of this wine. Remarkable stuff, in context. Such an appealing wine here. Lemon-lime scents, faint nougat-oatmeal yeasty character, piercing and pure, drives across the palate with incredible velocity and vitality. Dart-shaped and slender, fine boned yet has an inherent juiciness. Crystalline, tangy finish. Brilliant drinking now, has a grand, grand future too.”

The Helm Family purchased land at Murrumbateman in 1973 and began planting their vineyard. Ken saw great potential in this site and planted Riesling and Cabernet Sauvignon. The Cool climate wine region of Murrumbateman sits about 35 km from Canberra and about 15km from Yass, NSW Ken and his daughter Stephanie make all the wines at Helm. The winery uses a combination of the best modern Stainless steel tanks to traditional basket presses. With these techniques and a minimalist approach to wine making, Ken wants you to experience a bottle of wine that best shows the Terrior of his site.
