The Label

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.

The Sword Name

‘The Foil’ 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.

Winery Tasting Notes


Shows fruit on the offensive, a thrust of lifted passionfruit combines with slices of gooseberry and snowpea with a mineral edge.


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.

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
