Brilliant wine... Benchmark stuff.
About The Wine
It would be difficult to overstate just how important the "Ken Helm effect" has been on the Canberra wine scene.
As one of the region's pioneering winemakers, much of current plethora of extraordinary wines being produced in the area can trace their heritage back to this man. We have a lot to thank him for.
This is the top of the Helm Riesling totem pole. His Queen of Queens. The most intense, the most luxurious the most earth-shattering example of his pet variety that he can muster which is only released if the vintage is just right.
This is one of the country's most elite white wines, something that deserves some time in a cool dark place to really hit its straps. Having said that if you like young, powerhouse Riesling this will reward the patient and impatient alike.
