Quick Overview of Sémillon
Sémillon grapes are golden-skinned white grapes which can be used to make dry white wines, but which are particularly suited to the production of quality sweet white wines. The reason for this is that Sémillon lends itself well to infection from the Botrytis Cinerea fungus, also known as 'Noble Rot' - these grapes are an essential component of the prestigious Sauternes wines.
Sémillon grapes are grown in France, Australia and South Africa, where they are also known as 'wyndruif' (wine grape)
English-speakers should not that there is no 'l' sound in the pronunciation of 'Sémillon', regardless of what other online 'resources' indicate. The 'll' sounds like a 'y' in English.
