CV's Estate Semillon Wine Details
Price: $18.00 per bottle

Description: Grown on-site in Churchill County, this one is full yellow/gold colored white wine. CV’s Semillon has a lovely evolved rich nose with toasty, fruity notes and herbal and honey hints. The intense bold and herbal, rich texture makes a stunning white wine.

Varietal Definition
A thin skinned grape producing wines of high extract and flavour but soft acidity. In France it combines with Sauvignon Blanc to make the white wines of Bordeaux, most notably the sweet dessert wines of Sauternes and Barsac. Its thin skin leaves it susceptible to the fungus botrytis* the much sought after 'noble rot' in these sweet wine regions. As a varietal it has fared best in Australia, notably the Hunter Valley, where it produces well-rounded wines with lots of tropical fruits and honeyed tones. Here too it is blended with Chardonnay and oak aged to give an added dimension.
