Wine Guide > Semillon


5496 visitors
Sémillon is the major white grape in Bordeaux, Graves and Sauternes. Whereas today Australia’s major white varieties are Chardonnay and Sauvignon blanc, early in the country’s viticultural development it was Sémillon, which was mislabeled as Riesling.
More information on Semillon
Food Pairing: As a dry wine, pairs well with dim sum and light summer fare such as ice cold prawns. The classic pairing with Sauterne is fois gras, but is really best sipped on its own.

2000 Botrytis Sauvignon Blanc /Semillon
Napa Valley

The 2000 vintage began early with budbreak occuring in the third week of March. A severe heat wave in mid June caused some of the newly set berries to dessicate, thus reducing the ...morecrop. Ideal weather continued for the Sauvignon Blanc from the end of June until harvest, with warm days and cool nights. A rain storm in early October and regular morning fog gave perfect conditions for Botrytis to infect the thin-skinned grapes. The 2000 Botrytis Sauvignon Blanc /Semillon is golden yellow and shows intense classic botrytis characteristics of apricot and honey along with Sauvignon Blanc notes of passion fruit and orange zest. On the palate this seductive dessert wine explodes with sweet citrus and tropical flavors.

Each grape variety was ...moreheavily botrytis and individual bunches were hand selected. The entire clusters were placed in the press and gently squeezed for 3 hours. The wine was then aged in neutral, small French Nevers oak for 19 months. This wine is an incredibly rich, sauternes-style dessert wine. The bouquet gives immediate apricots and peaches that follow through on the palate. The texture is rich, but not cloying on the palate. The complexity of flavors is quite remarkable--peaches, a touch of tropical, and a hint of nutmeg. Only six barrels were produced.

Sonoma County

The rich, round mouthfeel, complex fruit and definite acidity make this an enjoyable wine now, while it definitely will improve with bottle age. A highly versatile wine, this Semil ...morelon is as enjoyable with salmon as it is with halibut. It will complement a grilled chicken, or one with a complex sauce. Clearly, this wine deserves a place in any cellar.
