Riposte 'The Sabre' Pinot Noir 2020

Special Price $30.00 Regular Price $38.00
A dense and intense edition of the Sabre, with low yields and plenty of new French oak. Lots of red fruits and cherries, some mushroomy character, plenty of chard and tannin. Chewy and intense.

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.
