Jermann W... Dreams ... ... ... 2005
Resplendent straw yellow in color, fascinating, & complex bouquet with aromas of rare elegance & finesse—prevalently ripe exotic fruit, melted butter, vanilla, & pastries. These aromas are kept and enhanced on the palate, yet the wine is still rich. This is such a rich, amazing white—it's worth enjoying on its own as a meditation wine. If paired with food, choose rich, structured first courses and fish with sauce, seafood, white meat, or cheese.
97% Chardonnay, 3% secret. Bottled by Jermann. In 1881, the Austrian Anotonio Jermann settled in Villanova di Farra, founding what was to become Friuli's premier wine estate. Great-grandson Silvio, a graduate of two of Italy's most celebrated oenological schools—Conegliano and Istituto di San Michele—today leads the way in Italian white wine, producing examples that are the very essence of varietal expression; multilayered and complex. The name and the story of this wine are rather curious: it was first dedicated to a rock album: U2’s The Joshua Tree (1987) and one song in particular, called "Where the Streets Have No Name." Hence the original label, "Where the Dreams have no end." The first vintage, needless to say, was 1987. Since then, the name of the wine saw a few variations.
