Semillon grape


Delighted to see 2004 South African Semillon offered in the recent New World leaflet. One of my favourite grape varieties but, in my opinion, it needs a few years under its belt to develop the attractive complexity. It then seems to go on forever which is remarkable, especially as the ABV tends to be low. Anyway, I’m looking forward to the wine arriving this Friday.

What are other members’ experiences and opinions of this grape variety?


I was also delighted to see it as noted here, always keen to compare old wines to young wines. My order is arriving 1 February…
