Semillon

The Semillon or Sémillon grape is, in my opinion, a hugely under-rated white grape variety. Admittedly Semillon wine is not going to appeal to people who prefer their white wines to be very light in colour and body but it has a lot going for it, not least the fact that it is so versatile. The Semillon grape produces:
  • complex, fuller-bodied, still dry wines and
  • rich sweet wines plus
  • it blends well, especially with Sauvignon Blanc and particularly in Bordeaux and in Australia.
For more information on Semillon read my blog.

It's time to give Semillon a chance ... just find the right style of Semillon for you - see my Semillon wines below.

If you are a fan of Chardonnay give a 100% varietal like Wally White a try or the Boekenhoutskloof Semillon which has a splash of Sauvignon Blanc to help the acidity. If you are more of a Sauvignon Blanc fan, try a Sauvignon-Semillon blend e.g. from Bordeaux. And don't forget the classic sweet, dessert wine.

I can't think of many white wine drinkers who wouldn't enjoy one of these styles.
