2009 Royal Syd­ney Wine Show tro­phy win­ners THE 2008 An­gul­long Sau­vi­gnon Blanc (95 points, $14.99) is del­i­cate but pure. Its aro­mas and flavours range through pas­sion­fruit, goose­berry and grass, and the palate has im­pec­ca­ble length and bal­ance. The 2008 Helm Clas­sic Dry Ries­ling (95 points, $28), al­ready with two tro­phies, is crisp, dry and tightly fo­cused, with a mix of cit­rus and min­er­ally acid­ity in­ter­twined on the long palate. The 2008 Helm Pre­mium Ries­ling (94 points, $45) has greater weight and in­ten­sity than the Clas­sic Dry, but not the same fo­cus as the Clas­sic, also with two tro­phies from the 2008 Cool Cli­mate Wine Show.
