Planted in 1971, Shell Creek Vineyard is among the first vineyards planted in San Luis Obispo County and is organically farmed. This remote vineyard of the Paso Robles Highlands District sits beneath limestone cliffs featuring marine fossils after which the vineyard was named.
The Valdiguié grapes were fermented with native yeast in a carbonic maceration style. After 10 undisturbed days, the wine was pressed to tank for one night, before moving to neutral oak barrels. After 7 months, the wine was bottled without fining or filtration.
Only 302 cases produced.
