Overview

The grapes are from Charlie’s Patch vineyard at Charleston in the Adelaide Hills and were a mixture of I10V1 and Bernardi 76 and 96. The vines were shoot thinned to ensure a moderate crop and to allow more sunlight into the canopies helping develop ripe flavours at lower sugar levels.

Winery Tasting Notes

The 2016 Katana Chardonnay reveals a supple core of white stone fruit and citrus blossom overlaid with tempered edges of minerality. On the palate bright varietal fruit is guided to the finish with nuances of French oak and crisp acidity

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
