The grapes for ‘The Dagger’ are from two great vineyard sites at Charleston in the Adelaide Hills.
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.

Winery Tasting Notes
Striking floral edges with cuts of bright red berries create a fresh yet complex attack on the senses.
Lifted rich fruit and spice parry along the palate to develop 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.
