Originally grown in Southeastern France, in that area the Semillón is attacked by a fungus that causes the "noble rot", when the natural grape sugars become highly concentrated. This effect enables to produce sweet and creamy wines with a particular velvety palate. Outside its place of origin, it is used to produce varietal wines.
In Argentina, this variety is grown across a significant area, but it has not been commercially successful. This is a grape of cold areas and there are only two places in our country where it is giving optimum results: the Valley of Río Negro and the Valley of Uco in Mendoza.
Its wines are dry, full-bodied and they taste of fruit, especially apple, with an interesting touch of honey.
Cluster: medium-sized, compact and with cylindrical shape.
Grapes: small, ovoid and with soft skin.
