2018 Spotlight Pinot Gris
Fermented in a dry style with a rich, full-bodied palate of spice and citrus fruits. A little time in bottle adds depth and complexity.
Initially planned as a private ‘reserve’ label for a restaurant, our 2018 Spotlight Pinot Gris is the first in a new line of wines from Play. Due to the impact Covid-19 has had on our friends in the restaurant industry, we have a little more of this wine to share.
By picking early, we captured the floral aromatics inherent to Gewürztraminer while retaining a bright freshness that is so easy to lose with this variety. We then worked to build texture in the cellar by aging a portion sur lie, instead of relying on residual sugar, as our aim was to make a bone dry style.
2019 Moscato Frizzante$22.00
We wanted to produce a Moscato, but we wanted to do it our way: just barely off-dry, lightly effervescent, with moderate alcohol. It had to be food friendly and, of course, have Muscat’s floral aromatics, but we also wanted a notch more complexity. So, we blended three varieties of Muscat, with a portion undergoing a wild fermentation.
2019 Sauvignon Blanc$22.00
Our aim is to make a classically styled Sauvignon Blanc with bright citrus fruits and subtle herbs. We then build texture and complexity by aging a portion of the blend on its fine lees with regular bâtonnage and add in a single barrel from one of our favourite coopers, François Frères.

With diligent vineyard management, we were able to bring in gorgeous looking fruit at harvest even after a challenging, wet September. This meant we could use a little bit of skin contact for heightened aromatics and also have the fruit ripeness and weight to support aging in three beautiful Sansaud barrels.
