Riesling Classic Dry
Our Classic Dry Riesling is made from grapes sourced from the Helm estate and neighbouring vineyards within the valley in which the Helm winery is situated. The Helm estate vineyard contains the oldest Riesling vines in the Canberra district-planted in 1974. This is Helm Wines' 46th Riesling vintage and is Ken Helm's 77th year.
The 2022 season was one of the coolest and wettest, with record rains, frost free spring, a welcome change from the previous years of drought affected crops. However, a hailstorm in January 2022 caused a 50% loss of some crops. The harvest was in near perfect dry, and cool conditions.
Resulting in very high quality fruit, of wonderful! balance. harvested in early March. The unique season produced a premium quality Canberra District Riesling.
Aromatic fresh citrus aroma. Clean, fresh, palate of lime cordial and lifted flavours balanced by soft acidity.
Lingering refreshing finish.
Like all of our Rieslings, this wine can be paired with numerous dishes. It especially complements Asian cuisines and seafood.
Built to last, the wine can be enjoyed now while it is young and crisp. Cellar for 10 + years which will allow it to develop mellow and toasty lime cordial flavours .Back to all wines
