WineDiva's Review

Zesty, fragrant, fresh.
Having undergone a packaging makeover, Play's labels are looking quite lighthearted these days. The winery itself is outside of Penticton on Skaha Hills Drive and boasts some outstanding views from the winery and bistro.
Made from estate grown Viognier that went through 24-hours of skin contact, the wine was partially fermented in French oak and aged sur lie.
Tongue-in-cheek on the label: 240 cases were made and of those six went to "the bear", which I suspect was mowing down on those delicious plump Viognier grapes before harvest.
It presents notes of ginger biscuit and peach crumble, pineapple chunks and vanilla, lime and honeysuckle. The palate is zesty and lively, with lemon curd and yellow apple flavours. It has agreeable weight and concentration but isn't blown-out as so many over-ripe Viogniers can be.
