Semillon is a grape used to produce full-bodied white wines. Semillon wines from cooler climates (e.g.: northern Australia) reveal more acidity, citrus flavors and floral aromas. Meanwhile, Semillon from warmer climates (e.g.: Australia’s Barossa Valley and California) are characterized by ripe fruit aromas of mango and papaya, and are often oak-aged to add a creamy texture. Semillon is blended with Sauvignon Blanc and Muscadelle to produce Sauternes, a famous dessert wine from Bordeaux.
