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.
The 2021 vintage was superb for Piccadilly Valley Sauvignon Blanc. The 2021 ‘The Foil’ shows vibrancy and depth with elegant passionfruit and floral notes. A long driving palate of intense fruit tapers cleanly to a crisp, finely balanced conclusion.
Pristine and brightly expressed with Granny Smith apple, nectarine, fresh fig and lemon zest aromas, it's vibrant and flavoursome in the mouth offering terrific fruit purity combined with lively acidity, finishing fabulously long and juicy.
