Semillion

This beautiful golden skinned grape is a beautiful white wine grape that creates sweet wines. The Semillon grape variety is said to be one of the most popular varieties of wine grapes in the world. Semillon blanketed almost all of Chilean vineyards during the 1900s. The type was also used to create white wines in France and Australia. Semillion creates white wines that are the longest lasting, and are responsible for some of the most popular sweet wines in the world today. Semillon is a variety famed from the region of Bordeaux and has also been grown in regions of Australia, in the oldest wineries in the region. In South Africa, the variety was also very popular, and covered roughly  90 percent of the vineyards in the South African Cape region in the 1900s. The popularity declined and today, the Semilion makes up around 1 percent of the vineyards. Because the variety can withstand difficult conditions such as rot and disease, Semillion has been a popular choice. These grapes tend to bear high yields, and are low in acid and contain a somewhat oily texture. Wines crafted from the variety tend to be sweet and dry. The ease of cultivation and the variety's nature to be harvested early in the year also lends to its popularity. When Semilion is grown in hot regions, the color of the grape can actually turn a nice light pink color because of its light skin. Australian wines with Semillon are sweet and contain honey-like aromas, and can include a apple or citrus flavor. Crisp flavors of lemon or lime can also be present.
