Helm Tumbarumba Riesling 2018


Absolutely delicious dry Riesling from Helm yest again. Floral, spicy & complex. There is a fantastic mid-weighted palate following on from a floral, citrussy aromatic & slatey beginning. What follows is energy filled, crisply dry & complex to say the least. Yum.

94/100, Halliday Wine Magazine, “Part of the Helm range since 2012; the altitude 630m. There’s depth, length, and a near-wanton display of lime juice-accented flavours. Crisp, minerally acidity leads to a fresh finish. Good wine.”

    Score: 94 Points, Huon Hooke, The Real Review, “This fine wine from Canberra District riesling specialist Ken Helm has lovely floral aromas, spicy and highly detailed, the palate soft yet lively with a silky texture and good intensity. Long, harmonious aftertaste. It’s remarkably complex for such a young riesling.”
