When we look at our wines every year, it’s a chance to harken back not just to the current vintage but to previous vintages and see how the wine in question reflects its moment in time. Some wines impose their own characters, some soak up the environment. Skin-n-Bones, as it turns out, is the perfect seasonal muse. 2021 was a mellow easy rider, 2019 a classic Burgundy, 2017 was wild and lurid. As a vintage, 2022 was long and cool creating wines with good ripeness but great structure. Skin-n-Bones 2022 is light-bodied tar and spice, red cherries and just-ripe rhubarb, beautifully soft on the back palate with a dense, juicy, chalky centre, all that you’d expect if you’d held a mirror to the vintage.
