Semillon is generally mixed with Chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc due its relative neutrality. On its own, it has a light honey and apricot bouquet with hints of grass and fig, and is slightly nutty. This wine is best matched with light foods such as shellfish, white fish, and chicken, as well as fruit salads, and grilled vegetables. For a special treat, try pairing it with Thai food featuring coconut milk or light curries. When mixed with a stronger wine, it can be matched with rich cheeses such as goat Brie, but on its own works best with simpler cheeses that won’t overwhelm its light flavours such as Bocaccini. Oily, fatty, and heavily seasoned foods should be avoided as well. Semillon’s simplicity lends itself well to light brunches and casual entertaining, especially in warmer weather.
