Helm 2010 Riesling Classic Dry
The Canberra region has started to establish a reputation for fine, long-lived rieslings – and the pioneer of the movement was Ken Helm, who has long been a believer in the grape’s immense potential in the district and has been making fine wines from riesling for 34 years. Low in alcohol at just 11.5%, this is a stunning wine with brilliant structure. It has a floral bouquet, lifted citrusy palate and beautifully balanced clean acid finish. $28.
