94 Pts James Halliday - Australian Wine Companion
"Excellent crimson-purple, deep and star-bright; the bouquet offers red cherry and plum fruit which are the building blocks of the palate, cemented by spicy/savoury nuances on the back-palate. Exceptional - indeed inexplicable - low price." (02/13)
"Lush dark berry fruit with striking floral edges combine on the nose of the 2012
Dagger Pinot Noir to create a fresh yet complex attack on the senses. Lifted rich
fruit and spice parry along the palate to a finish of fine-grained tannin and bright
"The Dagger has been honed to create a vibrant, rich, earlier drinking wine
displaying all of the hallmark aromas and flavours of Pinot Noir.
Drink young while the edge is keen." - Winery
"The grapes for 'The Dagger' are from Charleston and Piccadilly in the Adelaide
Hills." - Winery
"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
Tim Knappstein - History:
"The Knappstein family began making wine in
South Australia's Clare Valley in 1894. A third
generation vigneron Tim began his career at the
family owned Stanley Wine Company.
After being named Dux of his year in oenology
at the renowned Roseworthy College he went on
to win over 500 show awards, gold medals and
trophies in his first 10 years as head winemaker
at Stanley with their premium brand
"In 1969 Tim ventured out on his own and
founded the Enterprise and Tim Knappstein
Wines labels in the Clare Valley and established
himself as one of Australia's most highly
An unrequited desire to produce premium cool
climate varieties, in particular Pinot Noir, led
Tim to plant the first vineyard in the Lenswood
district of the Adelaide Hills in 1981.
In 1994 Tim severed all ties with the Clare
Valley winery bearing his name to live and
make wine full time in the Adelaide Hills under
the Lenswood Vineyards . These and later
Riposte wines continued to gain accolades both
domestically and abroad."
"Alongside making wine Tim has been a
continuous fixture on the show judging circuit
since 1975 and chairs the Cowra and National
Cool Climate Wines Shows. He is also a
winemaking consultant and is regarded as one
of Australia's most informed and experienced
cool climate vignerons."
"In 2006 as a response to personal
vicissitudes and the inability to use his own
name as a brand Tim launched the Riposte
label, a small portfolio of complex and striking
cool climate wines from the Adelaide Hills.
Riposte is a fencing term meaning a quick
reply or counterthrust and is Tim's personal
reply to the increasingly corporatised world of
wine making. Tim's driving passion is to
create the finest wines possible from premium
Adelaide Hills vineyards.
A true family enterprise from its inception
Riposte is wholly owned and run by Tim with
his wife Dale and son Nick." - Winery
