Dreams IGT, Silvio Jermann 2016
The 2016 Where Dreams Have No End is 97% Chardonnay with a tiny part of other international and indigenous grapes that are added or subtracted according to the characteristics of the vintage. Some 35,000 bottles were made. Like Jermann's other whites, this expression is mostly fermented in stainless steel with a small part in small French barrel. This partial oak fermentation (and aging in barrel for 11 months) gives the wine a subtle, almost satiny textural gleam. The wine delivers ample fiber but not in an obvious way. You might describe this as a seemingly unoaked oaked Chardonnay. 2019 - 2028
