Joyce 2018 Chardonnay Submarine Canyon, Monterey County
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.
