Peay's 2014 Sonoma Coast releases
26 October 2017

Brothers Andy and Nick Peay, and Nick’s wife Vanessa, craft some of the most thoughtful and cerebral wines to come out of America’s West Coast. Situated way up in the very far northwest of the Sonoma Coast appellation, close to the town of Annapolis, the Peay vineyard is as striking as it is remote. Out here bears are a bona fide vineyard pest and the fog-line is a frequent visitor. It’s a cool yet sheltered site, planted to a striking number of highly selected low yielding small berry clones, carefully chosen by the Peay brothers to bring out the best of this marginal microclimate.

In winemaking terms the philosophy here is all about the gentle approach, with low new oak usage and minimal intervention. The resulting Peay style sits very much in the new school of American pinot noir where balance is king. There’s nothing bold or brash about these complex, subtle wines. They are produced at the limits of Pinot Noir ripening precisely because the Peay team seek tension and great acidity in their wines and they understand that the only natural way of achieving this is to make the vines struggle.
