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.
A truly excellent year for Pinot Gris. Mouth filling fresh cuts of pear and apple entwined with spice and floral nuances. Rich fruit resolves in a lingering finish of crisp acidity. Vibrant and lifted will develop additional depth over 2-3 years.
Embraces an almost Alsatian mentality in the delivery of this pinot gris with some deep-running layers of spice. Vibrant and enticing. Trademark apple, pear, lemon drop, dried fruit, bergamot and spice. Smooth and even with great persistence. Fine and elegant.
