Helm Classic Dry Riesling 2023


This dry Riesling from the Murrumbateman region is classified as a Canberra district wine. This, the 47th vintage of this wine from an Australian Riesling legend is a brilliant snap-shot of vintage 2023. It emits a wonderfully bright fruited and exotic nose of green & red apples, star fruit, white peach, nectarine, lemon curd & wild honey. The palate kicks in with loads of citrussy attack & crunchy apples tempered with a soft, mid-palate fullness that then finishes with high-toned and bright freshness. This should cellar well for years to come.

More Information

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. In 2010 Ken was appointed a Member in the General Division of the Order of Australia recognising Ken’s service to the Australian Wine Industry, the promotion of Riesling and the Cool climate Wine regions of Murrumbateman and Yass.
