Why is this image so noisy?

Hey everyone. I'm here with another technical question.

I made the following shot at base 200 iso with my X-E3 and I feel like the mountains area is more noisy than I would expect. Especially when I try to pull the shadows or the blues it gets ruined pretty quickly. I'm generally extremely happy with the quality of X-Trans sensor files but sometimes I struggle with high DR scenes. What can I improve the next time I'm doing a shot like this? I think I either underexposed, did something wrong with the settings or just don't understand some limitations of the sensor. Eager to learn, so please share your wisdom.
