Jermann Dreams 2020
|Region||Italy, Friuli-Venezia Giulia|
This is always a very complex and complete white with cooked apples, pears, light lemon curd and vanilla. Hints of minerals. It’s full-bodied with a round, delicious palate. Beautiful, ripe fruit and length. Drinkable now, but better in 2022 and onwards. Screw cap.

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.
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.
The 2019 Dreams opens with an extroverted display of crushed oyster giving way to vanilla custard, hints of curry leaf and citrus-tinged peach. This is a silky and pliant effort with mineral-infused orchard fruits and savory spice, yet I find myself craving more depth. It tapers off lightly structured, leaving lemon oils and a salty flourish. Frankly, I was expecting more from this varietal Chardonnay, especially from the 2019 vintage.
