USA: U.S. Semillon

What is U.S. Semillon?
Semillon is best known as the blending grape used with Sauvignon Blanc in Bordeaux. It is bottled alone, however, in Australia and increasingly in the United States. Several Washington vintners, in particular, seem to have shown interest in the varietal. In the U.S. it produces a medium-bodied, lush wine that has distinctive figgy flavors and often features a yeasty note. It tends to be fairly rich and lower in acidity. As such, it makes a good match with poultry or rich seafood dishes. The best examples are seriously underpriced and make for excellent value.
