U.S.A. > California > Sonoma

The Joyce Vineyard is amongst Ernest Vineyards coolest sites, found in the brand new West Sonoma Coast AVA and often blanketed by the chilly Pacific fog. These environmental conditions yield a Chardonnay of piercing acidity and delicacy, with inviting notes of green fruit and citrus. 

94/100 - The minerality cuts through immediately in the Joyce Vineyard, which is 1.2 ha, certified organic in the far south end of the West Sonoma Coast. Ernest picked up in 2017; it might be the coldest site in California. The clone that was planted for sparkling is being moved from a monoclonal planting of clone 5 to Wente, clone 4 and Hyde, clone 112. Lean and delicate, etched with a laser minerality, smoky grilled lime, grapefruit pith, and crushed slate. - Clive Pursehouse, Decanter

94/100 - Lemon and green apple with pear and lemon blossom aromas and flavors. Medium to full body with lovely lemon, mineral and pear undertones that really kick in at the end. Nuanced. Fascinating and complex. Drink or hold. - James Suckling

On the nose, notes of green apple, citrus cream, minerals, and a “coolness” of style.
On the palate, the wine displays delicacy, but piercing acidity with sour green apples and Meyer lemon flavors. The minerality peaking through the mid-palate has the freshness of morning fog followed by delicate marks of wild herbs.

Enjoy as an apéritif, or pair with light fowl or fish dishes.

Their inspiration was a tasting Erin attended a few year prior, when she sampled a few wines from what is now the West Sonoma Coast AVA.
