Riposte The Dagger Adelaide Hills Pinot Noir 2017
Savour Tim Knappstein's 94pt Pinot Noir that has "much to offer" (Halliday)
A savoury, food friendly Pinot Noir from Tim Knappstein, likely to be very familiar to Aussie wine lovers. After all, he’s made wine for over 50 years and has won more than 500 wine awards. Today, along with his son, he runs Five Red Star Riposte in the Adelaide Hills and as Halliday writes “prices for almost all the wines are astonishingly low” . The lovely savoury, earthy, gamey Pinot Noir is a case in point. “Full colour. The dagger has only just been drawn as at September ’17, but will underwrite the development of a wine that has much to offer. It has considerable depth and complexity to its plum and dark cherry fruit. A foresty/earthy subtext adds another dimension... 94 points” (Halliday).
