Semillon

Semillon wine grape variety
Along with Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, is the key ingredient in the white wines of Bordeaux both dry and sweet including the famous wines of Sauternes and Graves. Semillon is also grown elsewhere in the South West most impressively for the sweet wines of Saussignac, Monbazillac, Cadillac, Loupiac and Barsac.

As a grape it tends to be soft and fruity, and sometimes lacking in acidity – which is one reason why it works well when blended with the more acidic Sauvignon Blanc in Bordeaux, Bergerac etc
Semillon is an easy-drinking white grape with lime and creamy toasty flavours
Goes with white fish, light chicken dishes
Semillon Found in Bordeaux and South West France
