Often we gravitate towards something we are familiar with, and wine is no exception.
For white wines, I often witness people reaching for the typical Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Grigio. DON’T DO IT! I mean don’t get me wrong, those are two great varietals, but wine is an experience….why not try something new once in awhile?
If you are a lover of Sauvignon Blanc, I recommend you try Semillon. It shares a lot of the same characteristics as Sauvignon Blanc, but carries a bit more weight in my opinion. There is a good chance that if they were poured side by side at a blind tasting, you might have a hard time telling the difference between the two.
So if you are looking to try something new, without straying too far from “the usual”, ask for a Semillon!
Have you had a knock-it-out-of-the-park Semillon before? If so, please let us know which ones so we can compare!
