Semillon Wine: Fall Transition Varietal

In The Imbibery and Distillery by Christine McKellar

white wine bottleSeptember brings climate and landscape changes that are sure to lead to adapting not just wardrobes and thermostats; but taste buds as well. A light, acidic Semillon could be the answer to  transitioning from the fruity, heavy, and sweet summer cocktails and varietals to heavier, belly warming winter whiskeys, plush red wines and spiked toddies. As with most all things wine, Semillon grapes are found in France but one of the most  popular producers of this light grape is found in Hunter Valley, Australia.  Semillon has a low alcohol content and is aged in bottles rather than oak cask. It pairs well with smoked fish and goat cheese.
