Assumed to hail from Bordeaux, France, this wine was used as a blending component in the famed Bordeaux Blanc blend with zesty Sauvignon Blanc or in Sauternes, a world-renowned sweet wine. Semillon as a wine grape variety is making a comeback in South Africa, especially springing up from Franschhoek.
This wine varies in bouquet from fresh grass, nettles, and a touch of citrus to a waxy honey nose. Generally, Semillon wines have an air of crispness and a zesty fresh lemon taste. When in cooler climates, Semillon wines hold a grassy flavour. Wooded wines take on an element of buttery toastiness and waxiness, while delicious dessert wines exhibit a fruity honey flavour.
