    Riposte, Australia
    Riposte  Winery Image
    Tim Knappstein became a third generation vigneron when he commenced his career in the family company, Stanley Wines, making his first wine in 1966, after graduating from the Roseworthy College Oenology course. In 1969, Tim ventured out on his own and founded the Enterprise and Tim Knappstein Wines labels in the Clare Valley. An unrequited desire to produce premium cool climate varieties, in particular Pinot Noir, then led Tim to plant the first vineyard in the Lenswood district of the Adelaide Hills in 1981. By 1994, he had finalized his business with the Clare Valley winery bearing his name, and focused full time in his Adelaide Hills Lenswood Vineyards. Tim is renowned for his no compromise approach to winemaking, production style and quality standouts in a very competitive industry. Always an innovator, in 1978 he introduced ‘Fume Blanc’ to the Australian market and, in 1980, botrytised Riesling made under controlled atmosphere. Tim’s driving passion is to create the finest wines possible from premium Adelaide Hills vineyards. A true family enterprise from its inception, his new label Riposte is wholly owned and run by Tim with his wife Dale and son Nick. Continuing the family tradition, Nick will be the fourth generation winemaker bearing the Knappstein name. The Riposte label is a small portfolio of complex and striking cool climate wines from the Adelaide Hills. Riposte is a fencing term meaning a quick reply or counter-thrust and is Tim’s personal reply to the increasingly corporatized world of wine making.

    Adelaide refers to the diverse super zone in South Australia containing the Mount Lofty Ranges Zone (Adelaide Hills, Adelaide Plains and Clare Valley), Fleurieu Zone (Currency Creek, Kangaroo Island, Langhorne Creek, McLaren Vale, and Southern Fleurieu) and Barossa Zone (Barossa Valley and Eden Valley).

    The Adelaide Hills region is distinguished and beautiful, offering a cool respite in the summer for Adelaide city dwellers. With vineyards planted fairly high in elevation at 1,500 to 1,800 feet, it is known for particularly fine, citrus-driven Sauvignon Blanc.

    The Adelaide Plains is a hot region northwest of the Adelaide Hills that produces approachable, value-driven wines.

    Gewürztraminer, an expressive and aromatically distinctive white grape variety, is considered a noble variety in the Alsace region of France, and produces wonderful wines in the mountainous Alto Adige region of NE Italy. Generally this grape grows well in cooler regions and its natural intensity makes it a great ally for flavorful cuisine such as Indian, Middle Eastern or Moroccan. Somm Secret—Because of a charming perfume and tendency towards slight sweetness, Gewürztraminer makes for an excellent gateway wine for those who love sweet wines but want to venture into the realm of drier whites.
