You'll wonder where this wine has been all your life.


Most people aren’t really aware of the Semillon grape, and if they are, it’s because they’ve seen it blended with Sauvignon. But Semillon isn’t just an accompaniment for Sauvignon, it’s a lively, fresh and delicious white, most succesfully grown in the Hunter Valley in Australia, where it calls to mind sherbet dib dabs! It’s quite high in acidity so not easy to drink a lot on its own. It can also be aged, which creates some seriously fabulous, intense, rich wines.

Things you should know

Top Tip: Look out for Bordeaux Blancs which are a blend of Sauvignon and Semillon, the Semillon transforms the wines.
Specific Food Match: "Semillon is a great match for ‘fusion’ cooking, where light, fresh ingredients meet aromatic flavours. The lighter wines are superb with seafood and fish dishes while the bigger wines are good with meatier fish and creamy sauces.
