Semillon

The main grape for Sauternes and particularly successfully grown in Australia’s Hunter Valley. Hunter Valley Semillon is one of Australia’s iconic and unique wines. In youth, the wines are quite citrusy and fresh but are generally perceived to gain hugely in complexity as they age and are deemed to be best drunk when at least 5 years old, frequently lasting for 10 or more years. In Bordeaux, it is the most widely planted white grape and is blended with Sauvignon Blanc to produce the great long-lived dry whites of Graves as well as the great sweet wines of Sauternes.
