Riposte The Sabre 2017 Pinot Noir
Finesseful yet powerful. Playful yet brooding. Plenty of florals here with a spiced and silken palate giving way to a finely tannic finish. Delicious now but good for cellaring such is its structure. If you enjoy your wines and have done for a while, you have no doubt heard the name Tim Knappstein before. He is a third generation vigneron, with the Knappstein name having been involved in the SA wine business since 1895.
Tim started making wine in 1966 and has amassed in excess of 500 show awards including 120 Gold Medals and 24 Trophies. Not bad huh! The Riposte label has allowed Tim to play around with some cool climate wines in the Adelaide Hills, most notably, ‘The Dagger’ Pinot, which regularly picks up accolades.
