La Semillón

In the 1960s, this variety was the most-planted white grape in Chile, but then experienced an abrupt drop-off in its production in later decades and was all but forgotten for a time. Today, however, this variety has begun a true rediscovery of its identity in Chile, and national wineries have set a new wave into motion for this variety. During the winemaking process, it is quite resistant to diseases, except in terms of rotting. The grape matures early and acquires a rosy hue in temperate climates. This grape variety has many uses, and it can be used to produce dry or sweet wines. Along with Riesling, Semillón also has the great virtue of nobly rotting, thus becoming one of the white varieties with greatest aging potential.
