Varietals can also be labeled with the region where they came from, such as a Clare Valley, Australia, Riesling, a Columbia Valley Semillon, but that region label is not part of the name of the variety of wine.
The Semillon brings in other characteristics that are unfamiliar to the average run-of-the-mill Sauvignon Blanc.
The Semillon adds femininity, with melon and floral attributes and some other oddball but seductive bits.
Other white wines include Pinot Blanc, Pinot Grigio, Semillon and Muscat, which is a popular sweet wine.
Winemakers harvest the Semillon at an early stage with high natural acidity and lower sugar ripeness.
Given these climatic factors, the benchmark variety, Semillon, is made in a very particular method.
What makes this one different is its blending with Semillon, 21% of it.
The beauty of Hunter Valley Semillon is its ageability.
The soil consists chiefly of mixed clay and gravel, or clay and limestone, and the vines chiefly used are the Sauvignon, the Semillon and the Muscatelle.
