I picked this up from the excellent Good Wine Shop in Chiswick – it’s a Savagnin from Brendon and Kirstyn Keys that spends a month on the skins before going to barrel. It’s quite a subtle wine but a delicious one, with real texture.
BK Wines Skin n’Bones Skin Contact White Savagnin 2016 Adelaide Hills, Australia
11.8% alcohol. This is really interesting. It’s a well behaved skin contact wine: lovely linear, textured citrus fruit with hint of pear. There’s a faint hint of mint, too. Has some spicy, white pepper bite under the fruit, and a long, linear finish, with a bit of lemon pith. This is really beautifully made. So balanced. 93/100

What is a “linear finish”?
