Wine By Grape Variety | Sémillon

Organic wine vineyard

Sémillon is a white grape variety that is susceptible to ‘noble rot’ in Sauternes and Barsac and as a result it can produce great sweet white wines. The best dry styles come from the Hunter Valley, Australia where the lime fruit characters of the grape work well together with the use of oak. Sémillon is often blended with Chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc which help to provide body and help sustain fruit flavours.
