An elegant palate of intense fruit tapers cleanly on the palate to a crisp, finely honed conclusion of fresh acidity. Enjoy while young and fresh.
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.

A fine light sword used in competition Fencing. First there is the ‘Attack’ then the swordsman will ‘Parry’ followed by ‘Riposte’ the third movement which is the reply, the comeback.
