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 essence of youthful, vibrant Adelaide Hills Pinot Noir from carefully selected vineyards. A bouquet of seductive black cherry overlaid with exotic spices leads to a palate of supple fresh berries, bright acidity and lingering fine grained tannin.

The grapes for the 2020 Dagger are all MV6 clone, both from the usual vineyard at Charleston and a new vineyard at Forreston.
Both of these vineyards were trained on VSP trellis and cane pruned, which promotes optimum fruit exposure to sunlight. This helps develop ripe flavours, colour and tannin.
Unfortunately, the vineyard at Gumeracha which usually supplies both MV6 and 777 clones was badly affected by the December bushfires and suffered total crop loss.

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
