Winemaker Notes

More than 40 years of careful, diligent farming have proven that the Edna Valley is truly a special place for Chardonnay. Those of us who have been here since its inception know and understand what a treasure this area is, as well as how it translates to fabulous wines. Like many other beautiful wonders on our planet - towering redwoods, powerful waterfalls, volunteer wildflowers, lush rainforests.

Critical Acclaim

WW 89
Wilfred Wong of Wine.com
A perfect chardonnay to serve on the porch or in the living room as dinner is being artfully prepared, the easy-to-like 2013 True Myth Chardonnay simply drinks well; ripe fruit, tropical and core, with some citrus and a fine note of creaminess, what more can one ask for? Give this one a nice chill and served with appetizers and lightly sauteed petrale sole. (Tasted: April 3, 2015, San Francisco, CA)

True Myth, Edna Valley, Central Coast, California
Image of winery

A specialty appellation winery, True Myth produces wines made of varietals from specific regions along California’s Central Coast. We grow the fruit for our brightly tropical Chardonnay in the Edna Valley, the coolest wine region in the state, and our gutsy bold Cabernet Sauvignon is from the distinctively warmer Paso Robles region only about 30 miles to the north. Both wines are rich and delicious, each speaking to the diversity of San Luis Obispo County.

Owned by the Niven family; pioneers of the Edna Valley AVA, farmers of the oldest continually harvested vines in the region, and previous owners of a Paso Robles Cab ranch. We have been a part of San Luis Obispo County’s farming history for more than four decades.

Edna Valley

View all wine

California’s coolest wine growing area, Edna Valley excels in the production of high quality Pinot noir, Chardonnay, Rhone Blends and aromatic white wines. It has a cool Mediterranean climate and an incredibly long growing season, giving late-ripening varieties plenty of opportunity to take their time to develop great phenolic complexity.

Its northwest-to-southwest orientation creates a direct path for cool Pacific air and fog to penetrate the valley from the Los Osos and Morro Bay area inwards. Low hillsides of both calcareous and volcanic soils are home to much of the vineyard acreage of the Edna Valley.

Chardonnay

View all wine

One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While practically every country in the wine producing world grows it, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. As far as cellar potential, white Burgundy rivals the world’s other age-worthy whites like Riesling or botrytized Semillon. California is Chardonnay’s second most important home, where both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines enjoy great popularity. Oregon, Australia and South America are also significant producers of Chardonnay.

In the Glass

When planted on cool sites, Chardonnay flavors tend towards grapefruit, lemon zest, green apple, celery leaf and wet flint, while warmer locations coax out richer, more tropical flavors of melon, peach and pineapple. Oak can add notes of vanilla, coconut and spice, while malolactic fermentation imparts a soft and creamy texture.

Perfect Pairings

Chardonnay is as versatile at the table as it is in the vineyard. The crisp, clean, Chablis-like styles go well with flaky white fish with herbs, scallops, turkey breast and soft cheeses. Richer Chardonnays marry well with lobster, crab, salmon, roasted chicken and creamy sauces.

Sommelier Secret

Since the 1990s, big, oaky, buttery Chardonnays from California have enjoyed explosive popularity. More recently, the pendulum has begun to swing in the opposite direction, towards a clean, crisp style that rarely utilizes new oak. In Burgundy, the subregion of Chablis, while typically employing the use of older oak barrels, produces a similar bright and acid-driven style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy its lighter style.
