|History:||The Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon grape varietals are known for their origins in producing wines from the Bordeaux Regions in France.
Here in Australia we are known for bringing the two together in a blend, commonly referred to as the “Classic White” wine blend. Sauvignon Blanc is a green skin grape, and it is believed to take its name from two French words – Sauvage – meaning “wild” and Blanc meaning “white”.
Less is known about Semillon, a golden skinned grape with it first being introduced into Australia in the early 19th Century, where it became synonymous with the Hunter Wine Region.
