Inspired by the great white wines of Bordeaux, Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc blends have become rather popular across other growing regions, particularly in the New World. This blend is used to craft both sweet and dry wines. Sauvignon Blanc brings acidity and citrus flavors to the blend, whereas Sémillon brings body, weight, and richer fruit notes. When vinified sweet, the grapes are often affected by botrytis. When vinified dry, lees aging is common.
