2019 Far Mountain 'Myrna' Chardonnay Sonoma County

(Net Item - no discounts apply)

Myrna comes in part from the amusingly named Bald Mountain, and a remarkable vineyard planted in 1972. Heritage California clones develop true depth of texture and flavor growing out of fractured and tectonic rock in a cool bowl. At the bottom of the site. The mountain character shows in the chalkiness, salinity and minerality that linger on the finish of this gorgeous Chardonnay. Creamy in texture and deftly balanced, Far Mountain gets close to perfection with its white wine debut!

Vinous

The 2019 Chardonnay Myrna shows just how compelling the vintage is for white wines. Lemon oil, white flowers, chalk and mint give the 2019 a brilliant upper register that almost comes as a surprise once the wine shows its superb depth and persistence. This highly expressive, nuanced Chardonnay has a lot going on and plenty to offer.

James Suckling

A polished, minerally chardonnay with sliced apple, lemon rind and some stone and flint. Laurel and other herbs, too. It’s medium-to full-bodied with a creamy texture and balance. Phenolic texture. Lively and stony.
