Juicy, salty, berries.
Having undergone a packaging makeover, Play Winery's labels are looking quite lighthearted these days. Located outside of Penticton on Skaha Hills Drive, the estate boasts outstanding views from the winery and bistro.
This Spotlight Series Malbec comes from the Don Douglas Vineyard and was aged for 16 months in French oak.
Wet concrete and freshly rolled cigar and toasted brown spice aromas are layered with sweet red berries and pomegranate syrup notes. Juicy wild red berry flavours dominate the palate along with peppery spices, andouille sausage and molasses. It has a medium+ body and chalky tannins; there is a distinct salinity on the finish.
A wine for BBQ.
