With 50 years experience and boundless enthusiasm for winemaking, Tim Knappstein has created Riposte with the specific vision of making exceptional wine from premium Adelaide Hills fruit at affordable prices. Riposte fruit is sourced from some of the oldest and best sited Adelaide Hills vineyards to produce a small range of complex and exciting wines.
Riposte, pronounced rip-posst, means ‘comeback, reply, retort’; a fencing term for a quick counter stroke. Using the fencing
inference each wine has been given a sword name.
From Pinot Noir picked off choice vines at Charleston and Gumeracha on the Adelaide Hills. Riposte means a quick comeback, reply or retort, in the sport of fencing it is the term for a swift counter stroke. After more than a decade of confusion about the Tim Knappstein name and eponymous wineworks, Riposte was chosen as the appropriate moniker for Knappstein's comeback label. The Dagger has been honed to create a vibrant and rich, earlier drinking wine displaying all the hallmarks of luscious Adelaide Hills Pinot Noir.
