Mr. Semillion meets Ms. Sauvignon Blanc, A marriage made in Bordeaux One of the great classic white wines of the world is the White Bordeaux.  While California has been taken with the aromatic Sauvignon Blanc (sometimes referred to as Fume Blanc), for centuries the French have been blending Sauvignon Blanc with Semillion (and sometimes other white wines) to round out the high acid and rather thin finish of this aromatic grape. David Blitstein and Dave Elliott have teamed up to allow our members to explore wines made from these grapes, and “put to the palate” a series of blends of these two wines.  The Sauvignon Blanc is from the Blitsteins’ award winning vineyard, and the Semillion came from Indian Springs Vineyard.  The members are asked to bring 6 glasses, their palates, and their sense of adventure.
