Helm Premium Riesling 2019

$58.00

Winefront – July 2020 – Mike Bennie – 96 Points

The Premium Riesling from Helm seems to dial things up a notch in intensity, detail and general sense of awesome. Let’s say it’s 33.3333% more awesome than the Classic Dry version.

Power in a compact frame. Light sabre thrust into the palate. A knitting needle over the tongue. Lime juice, mineral water, pent up and so very precise. Athletic and tense but there’s just that little tickle of juiciness too – a come hither succulence that gives drinkability in youth. Magnificent, refreshing, beautiful sense of pure, outstanding fruit. Such a pleasure to drink

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.
