Semillon is an early ripening white wine grape from France. It has a medium growing season with high yield potential. Vitis vinifera, the selected clone for data analysis was Semillon FVD10V12, IV64.2100. Grown for commercial wine production in Australia. The prime name of this variety is Semillon. It is a fairly vigorous variety with clones varying from spreading to rather more upright growth. Bunches are well filled to compact with only fair resistance to rain damage. In Australia Semillon is used for dry white wines which, particularly when yields are not too great, have a distinctive varietal character which lends itself to ageing.
