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 Grapes

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.

The Wine

Aromatic fresh citrus aroma. Clean, fresh, palate of lime cordial and lifted flavours balanced by soft acidity.

Lingering refreshing finish.

Serve with

Like all of our Rieslings, this wine can be paired with numerous dishes. It especially complements Asian cuisines and seafood.

Cellar for
