James Halliday - Australian Wine Companion:

"Full crimson-purple hue; a fine web of earth and spice is wound through the dark cherry and damson plum fruit of both the bouquet and palate, providing an extra measure of texture and structure. Still in its infancy, but promises much for the future – and at an enticing price."

Product Description:

"The Riposte label is a small portfolio of complex and striking cool climate wines from the Adelaide Hills. Riposte is a fencing term meaning a quick reply or counter-thrust and is Tim’s personal reply to the increasingly corporatized world of wine making.

The Dagger was made to show good length and structure, finishing with bright juicy Pinot Noir characters. A vibrant, rich, earlier drinking wine.

Grapes grown in ancient brown/grey loam over clay soils in Charleston and Piccadilly (Adelaide Hills). Clones are MV6, 777, 114 and 115, with most vines dating back to 1996. There is minimal use of both cultivation and chemicals. 35% whole berry ferment and aging in tank, egg white fining and no filtration." - Importer
