Kooyong Estate only make limited editions from tiny blocks of vine, a hectare or less, which yield deeply personal wines, highly eloquent of their terroir, aspect and clime. There are the pebbled ironstone soils of Farrago, which create an uncannily Burgundesque style of Chardonnay, redolent of grapefruits, mealy bran and wet flint. The precious half hectare at Faultline articulates the savouryness of seaweed and struck match. The sheltered lee of Haven Block encourages the grapes to bloom with chewy red jube characters. The windswept parcel at Meres infuses wonderfully perfumed rhubarb and ribena notes into a velvetine tannin structure.

Just three kilometres from Young along Murringo Road, planted to a brisk 500 metres above sea level, Grove Estate was originally sown to vines in 1886, by Croatian settlers who brought cuttings from their farms on the Dalmatian coast. Some of these ancient plantings, emigrated at a time when much of Europe was ruled by Hapsburg emperors, remain productive to this day. Newer blocks were gradually established around these priceless parcels, ostensibly with a view to supplying leading national brands. The quality of fruit became so conspicuous that Grove Estate sanctioned industry celebrities from Ravensworth and Clonakilla to begin bottling under their own estate moniker.

Riesling has been Ken Helm's passion for well over thirty years. He is a direct descendant of Rhine Valley vignerons and arguably understands Riesling better than anyone else in Australia. The Lustenberger vineyard sits at 650 metres, it faces north with an east to west row orientation, vertical shoot canopy managed, it's designed for maximum protection of fruit against sunburn, a main cause of inferior quality harvests and fruit taint. The soil consists of conglomerate volcanic ironstone and sandstone with a reasonable depth of friable over clay soils. Only those parcels of fruit which can display the essential qualities required of a national flagship Riesling wine are considered for inclusion into Black Label Helm.
Pale light straw colour. Fresh lifted floral nose showcasing topical lime and lemon citrus characters, mineral and spice. A soft acid palate displaying ferric notes, drying crystaline nature and slate, indicative of the iron soils content. Persistence of fruit with an elegant structure, offering all the classic varietal flavours of the finest slow ripened, cool climate Rieslings.
