Description

A third straight year where Helmsman's quality is beyond reproach, those who bought 2013 and 2014 should not miss extending their verticals - because this is a work of art. Impressively structured and as always, unyielding in its youth, the purity and detail are startling, its famous minerality and longevity on full display. Winemakers Tony Bish and Jenny Dobson continue to evolve this iconic label and this 2015 Sacred Hill Helmsman will be a 25-year wine with ease, drinking at its best from 2022.

Smells

Pure cassis, liquorice and iron ore, a kiss of nutty French oak as well as espresso and violet florals.

Tastes

Commanding and uncompromising in the mouth, 2015 Helmsman is a statesman. Best after 2022, it's so well balanced it can be approached from a decanter in its youth.
