Helmsford range by Paulett Wines is a fresh new product designed for the ‘On Premise’ Market.
Great for pouring and house wine status. It consists of a fresh zesty Riesling. a crisp an fruity Sem Sauv Blanc, and lastly a smooth little shiraz bursting with berries & spice. The Helmsford range is an easy drinking style made from the same high quality vineyards by the same skilled winemakers as all our Paulett Wines products.
The name ’Helmsford’ is the property name of our Watervale vineyard, known for producing consistently high quality and slightly softer fruit than the Polish Hill River Vineyards.
