I hate Semillon for it's very dry qualities, but I like Sauvignon Blanc.  This wine is 75% of the latter and 25% of the former and while the dryness of Semillon shines through, the Sauvignon Blanc comes forth with apples and a little lime.  It really is an interesting mix and not bad at all.

Our Mission: The Black Winer strives to expose African Americans [and others] to wines, without the flair, stuffiness, and airs of elitism and snobbery that you get from sommeliers and high level wine enthusiasts. We believe in finding something that you like the taste of, outside of the basic brands that you have been force-fed over the years through a combination of ethnically targeted advertising, and what people in your family have historically been drinking.
