Early Mountain Quaker Run Vineyard Chardonnay 2019 Review

It’s time. Virginia is here. The wine scene in the Commonwealth is firing on all cylinders and all the work of the past few decades has borne awesome fruit…literally. Early Mountain is one of many skilled wineries in Virginia and a great place to start getting into the wines from here. This Chardonnay is as balanced as it gets. This wine is less about aroma than it is about texture. It’s a joy to drink. The nose is soft and rich with a hint of some wet rock minerality, pure harmony. On the palate the laser sharp acidity races through the wine, lifting its depth in just the right places and making for a complete mouthfeel experience. You could eat with this wine, but you could also just sit with it and a friend and watch it open.
