2019 Jermann 'Where Dreams Have No End' Chardonnay Venezia Giulia
Jermann was founded in 1881 in the quiet village of Villanova di Farra by Austrian-born Anton Jermann. Today, the winery is led by Silvio Jermann, grandson of Anton, and Silvio’s son Michele. Silvio left Friuli in the 1970s to explore winemaking in other white wine regions. When he returned, he introduced stainless steel tanks and temperature controlled fermentations to preserve his wine's aromatic freshness and protect it from oxidation.
Where Dreams Have No End is produced at the Jermann's Ruttars winery is in the crescent-shaped Collio zone near the Slovenian border to the east. The vineyards are located in the area known as Ronco del Fortino, where therolling hills are composed of chalk and clay marl banded with sandstone and cooled by the Bora wind off the Adriatic Sea. A wide shift between day and nighttime temperatures endows wines from Collio with vibrant acidity and deeply-perfumed aromatics.
Wine Spectator - "A well-cut, medium-bodied and fragrant white, offering a fine range of yellow apple and pear fruit, chopped hazelnut, lime blossom, flint and spice. A streak of tangy salinity drives the finish. Chardonnay. Drink now through 2027. 217 cases made, 217 cases imported."
Wine Enthusiast - "Made predominantly with Chardonnay, this has aromas of French oak, ripe yellow apple and butterscotch. The aromas carry on to the elegant palate along with grapefruit and toasted hazelnut while fresh acidity keeps it balanced."
