Semillon

Primary to south-west France and the Bordeaux region, specifically Sauternes and Barsac, this grape varietal is prized for dessert wines due its richness and thin skins allowing this grape to be nobly affected by botrytis. Semillon, considered underrated in much of the world, made well can also produce interesting, full-bodied and long-lived dry white wines with satisfying flavors of citrus, honey, and grassiness. However, you may often find this grape blended with Sauvignon Blanc as Semillon has a tendency to be lower in acidity needing the crispness provided by Sauvignon Blanc. Another region to note for this unique grape is Hunter Valley in Australia.
