Joyce Vineyards Chardonnay Submarine Canyon Monterey 2019
This flagship Chardonnay is a pure representation of the coastal terroir in Monterey County. The name “Submarine Canyon” is a reference to the deep underwater canyon located in the Monterey Bay. This deep sea canyon provides the ideal marine climate for growing premium Chardonnay grapes.
All three of the vineyard sites from where we source fruit experience a strong marine influence. Ancient glacial soils made up of sand, gravel, limestone, and shale loam help create wine with bright acidity and saline-like minerality.
Aged in 75% neutral French oak and 25% in concrete vessels.
Stirred twice to promote natural occurring malolactic fermentation.
Aged on the lees 10 months.
Wine Enthusiast – “Dried lemon, sour citrus and pink-lemonade Popsicle aromas pop on the nose of this bottling. The palate combines lemon juice with light melon flavors, as orange-blossom and jasmine elements linger in the background.” (90 Pts)
