Riposte The Dagger Pinot Noir 2018 (Adelaide Hills)

Tasting Note
The 2018 Dagger Pinot Noir has floral edges with cuts of bright red berries combining on the nose to create a fresh yet complex attack on the senses. Lifted rich fruit and spice parry along the palate to a finish of fine-grained tannin and bright acidity. The Dagger has been honed to create a vibrant, rich, earlier drinking wine displaying all of the hallmark aromas, flavours and texture of Pinot Noir. Drink young while the edge is keen.

Reviews & Accolades
"Here we go again.
This is fantastic buying. Such good drinking at a snip of a price. Cherry-plum, redcurrant, sweet oak, throws of spice. Its appeal is obvious and immediate. Tannin is gum-smooth; it continues the uncomplicated theme. Varietal character served easy as you like."

The dictionary definition of ‘Riposte’ (pronounced rip-posst) is comeback, reply, retort, or in the context of the sport of fencing a quick counter stroke. After over a decade of confusion about his name ‘Riposte’ was chosen as an appropriate name for a ‘comeback label’ by Tim Knappstein.

The grapes for the 2018 Dagger Pinot Noir are from two carefully selected vineyard sites at Charleston and Gumeracha in the Adelaide Hills. As usual growers were requested to leaf pluck the morning (eastern side) of the Pinot vines soon after fruit set to give the optimum fruit exposure and aid the development of colour, tannins and ripe flavours.

Harvested in the cool of night and early morning pristine de-stemmed fruit is tipped directly into fermenters without crushing to give a high percentage of whole berries. The fermenters are gently pumped over twice a day to keep the skins wet and promote gentle tannin extraction. After pressing the wine is kept in stainless steel tanks prior to blending to preserve freshness and vibrancy. Winery Notes
