Riposte is an entirely family owned and run boutique winery. Tim, Dale and Nick form a close-knit team that is guided by the winemaking philosophy to be ‘hands on’ at every stage from vineyard to bottle. Each vineyard site is carefully selected for quality and its suitability for producing varietal character. Tim and son Nick work closely with the growers at every stage, ensuring grapes are picked at the optimum stage of ripeness, vibrancy and freshness.
“A sabre, it seems, can cleave a pinot that is alive with a fragrant red flower (roses) perfumed bouquet and a juicy/spicy palate that welcomes all who draw near. Relaxed, silky tannins and a quick kiss on the cheek by the oak, complete a wine that is ready now (but with more to come).” – 95 Points & Special Value Wine James Halliday
