Peay’s Scallop Shelf vineyard got its name when, while prepping the land for planting, viticulturist Nick Peay discovered ancient scallop and nautilus fossils in the soil strata: the vineyard’s ocean-floor past pre-dates the formation of the coastal Sonoma range where it’s located. This is a cool, breezy piece of land with a long growing season, sitting some 300 to 350 metres above sea level. You could call Peay Pinot specialists – they have a real knack for blending vineyard parcels and small lots. Their wines are not encumbered by overbearing sugar or overripe fruit and consistently retain refreshing acidity and engaging aromatic top-notes.

The single vineyard Scallop Shelf Estate Pinot Noir is a blend of six Pinot clones: Pommard, 777, 115, Swan, Mt. Eden, and 828. The wine was fermented in small, open-top fermenters, moved by gravity, aged for 11 months in new and neutral French oak barrels, and bottled unfined and unfiltered.

“Another gorgeous wine in this range, the 2018 Pinot Noir Estate Scallop Shelf is laced with pretty floral and mineral notes that work nicely with the wine’s taut, mid-weight frame. Bright, focused and wonderfully nuanced, the 2018 has so much to offer. I very much like the wine’s sense of energy, but it needs time to be at its best.”
95 points, Antonio Galloni, vinous.com, April 2020

“The 2018 Estate Pinot Noir Scallop Shelf is gorgeous! The nose offers intoxicating scents of ripe cranberries, rhubarb and tangerine peel with accents of floral potpourri, dusty earth, exotic spices and rose petals. The medium-bodied palate is very finely grained, super fresh and bursting with spicy fruits, finishing very long and layered. 600 cases produced.”
