Helm Classic Dry Riesling, Canberra District 2015 $35
The high quality of Helm riesling continues with this pale coloured youngster with its bouquet of floral fruit with cream, nut and straw-like details. It’s youthfully restrained and full of charm, the palate softly textured, with a delicious harmony of spice, herb and floral nuances.
