Sémillon is a fruity and floral white grape variety originally from the Gironde region in France, mostly found in the great Sauternes and Graves wines. Sémillon grapes are cultivated in Australia (Hunter Valley) but also in Argentina, Chile and California.
When young, this grape will display touches of hazelnut, peach and acacia flowers. As it ages, it will develop dried fruit aromas: honey, mango and dried apricot. Thanks to its qualities, Sémillon is complementary to Sauvignon, adding a roundness to the palate.
