All about semillon

What's sémillon wine?

Sémillon grapes have golden-colored skins and come from Bourdeaux in France. Winemakers blend them with sauvignon blanc and muscadelle to produce fruity white Bordeaux wines. Sémillon wines have a sweeter profile and vary in character depending on the region from which they come.

Flavor profile of this wine

Sémillon white wines have a lusciously sweet flavor that has many complex notes. You'll find hints of stone fruits such as apricot, peach, nectarine or mango. There's also a mellow taste of citrus, nut and honey with a smooth, silky finish on the palate.

Sémillon wines that come from cool climates, such as Bordeaux, are not oak-aged and have more acidity. They feature palate-cleansing citrus flavors of lime and lime zest. Hot climate sémillons have toasted buttery notes since winemakers use oak-barrel aging to add more depth of flavor. These wines come from regions like California, South Africa or Argentina and feature strong, fruity flavors of mango, yellow peach and papaya.
