Planted in 1971, Shell Creek Vineyard is among the first vineyards planted in San Luis Obispo County. 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 11 undisturbed days, the wine was pressed to tank for one night, before moving to neutral oak barrels. After 6 months, the wine was bottled without fining or filtration.
The 2021 Shell Creek Valdiguié bursts with juicy flavors and aromas of watermelon jolly rancher, fresh strawberry, and bubblegum. Exceptionally light and fruity, this carbonic expression is truly "glou glou."
