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.

Floral edges with cuts of bright red berries combine on the nose of the 2017 Dagger Pinot Noir 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.

The grapes for the 2017 Dagger Pinot Noir are from two carefully selected vineyard sites at Charleston and Gumeracha in the Adelaide Hills.

Vintage commenced 18 days earlier than 2014 and showed a return from the lighter crops of 2014 to average yields.

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 destemmed 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

Reviews & Accolades

Past Vintages

2016
"Light, but bright crimson hue; a surprise packet, until the memory of prior vintages clicks in. This has an indecent amount of complex varietal fruits; cherry and plum fruit engage in a duel to establish primacy, the referee coming in with spicy/savoury tannins to give context to the duel - which ultimately remains unresolved."
