It’s never too late to teach an old dog new tricks when the old dog in question is Tim Knappstein. With 40 years of winemaking and more than 500 wine show awards under his belt, Tim started yet another new wine life with Riposte, a subtle response to the various vicissitudes he has suffered in recent years. While having no continuing financial interest in Lenswood Vineyards,established many years ago,Tim is able to source grapes from it and also makes selections from other prime sites in surrounding areas. Exports to the UK, Canada, Holland, Singapore, Malaysia and China. James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion
