    2022 Riposte The Scimitar Single Vineyard Clare Valley Riesling

    From a single, long-established vineyard, made by Tim Knappstein with a lifetime’s experience. Apple blossom and talc aromatics; a fleshy entry with abundant lime/lemon flavours gaining intensity on the finish, where balancing acidity makes its mark.
