Three words come to mind when tasting the 2021: textural, richness, and focus. The wine opens with lifted aromatics of white flowers and fresh tarragon supported by a lovely fruit set of Anjou pear, tart pineapple, and cantaloupe. On the palate the wine expands, broadening the frame, bringing layers of texture and energy. Secondary flavors of lemon oil, mineral, and almond round out the mid-palate. The finish is long with lingering saline notes, subtle tropics, orchard fruit, and flint rock

  1. WE

    Grown at high elevation, this structured, elegant white is balanced and beautifully composed. Crushed rock, ripe pear and melon flavors combine around bright, well-integrated acidity and oak, with a lasting imprint of flinty minerality.

  2. JS

    A fresh and creamy chardonnay from here with stone, apple-pie and pear aromas and flavors. Tight at the end. Can age nicely. Drink or hold.

  3. VIN

    The 2020 Chardonnay marries textural richness and energy, all in grand style. Lemon confit, white flowers and light tropical accents lend quite a bit of character. There is striking creaminess and oiliness to the feel, even though the malolactic fermentation was fully blocked. The 2020 is just gorgeous in the way it conveys mountain energy while avoiding any sense of austerit

Mayacamas, a storied winery, is perched near the summit of Napa Valley's Mount Veeder sub-appellation. This historic estate has earned a stellar reputation for crafting classic Cabernet Sauvignon wines and exceptional Chardonnays. The winery's origins date back to 1889 when John Henry Fisher, an immigrant from Germany, built the stone winery and planted Zinfandel vines. However, the 1906 San Francisco earthquake forced Fisher to sell the winery during a period of bankruptcy. During Prohibition, Mayacamas continued to thrive by selling wine to the Church for religious purposes while discreetly running a bootlegging operation. In 1941, the winery was reborn as "Mayacamas" under the ownership of Jack and Mary Taylor. They replanted the vineyards with Chardonnay and Cabernet...check our brand Mayacamas
Chardonnay
Chardonnay, a green-skinned grape variety, is renowned in the world of white wine production. Originating from France's Burgundy region, it has spread globally, becoming a staple in diverse wine regions from the cooler climates of England to the sunnier terrains of New Zealand. Its cultivation is often viewed as a benchmark for emerging wine regions, symbolizing their entry into the global wine scene. The grape itself is relatively neutral, allowing the environment (terroir) and winemaking techniques, especially oak aging, to play significant roles in shaping the wine's flavor profile. Chardonnay is known for its versatility in styles - ranging from the mineral-rich, crisp wines of Chablis to the oak-infused, tropical-flavored varieties of the New World. The climate greatly influences...Please check Chardonnay for more information

History
Mount Veeder’s viticultural roots stretch back to the mid-19th Century. Although many vineyards flourished on this mountainous terrain by the dawn of the 20th Century, Prohibition halted viticultural activities. It wasn't until the 1960s, amidst Napa Valley's wine revival, that Mount Veeder saw resurgence. This unique region earned its American Viticultural Area (AVA) designation in 1990, an accolade that... ...Check Region for more information
