Riposte by Tim Knappstein The Sabre Pinot Noir 2006

78 points

Adelaide Hills, South Australia. 13.5%

After selling his winery in Clare some years ago Tim lost the right to brand wine under his own name.  This little label is his riposte.

Cute.  Pity about the wine.  It’s clean, ripe, soft, plain Pinot.  A low acid go nowhere wine, with not entirely attractive flavours though thankfully neither the sweet over-ripe extracted style nor the floral strawberry juice style.
