100% Semillon

The first Brazilian Semillon in the UK. Fragrant, zingy and toasty!

Pizzato Fausto Semillon is a dry white wine from Serra Gaúcha, Brazil. It's 100% Semillon with 12.0% abv. Suitable for Vegetarians.

The Pizzato family, originally from Italy, came to Brazil in 1880 and, after many years cultivating vines for other wineries, set up their own namesake winery in 1999. Today their 45 hectares of vines are split across Vale dos Vinhedos and Dois Lajeados, and overseen by current generation winemaker Flavio Pizzato. Flavio's father had originally experimented with Semillon in the 1960s, and Flavio replanted the variety on the family estate in 2012. Only 2,000 bottles of this rare white wine were made in 2018 and it's a very characterful expression of the grape. Matured in barrels with oak staves and acacia wood heads, this is a straw-coloured full bodied white wine with aromas of toasted nuts, vanilla spice and wildflowers. On the palate expect a creamy texture with zingy, lemon-like acidity, fleshy pears and white peach, all finishing up with sweet spice. Very memorable!

You'll like this if you like... Oak-matured Chardonnay or Aussie style Semillons, particularly the richer ones from the Barossa Valley. 

Pairs beautifully with: Satay chicken, BBQ pork or oily fish, pasta in a creamy sauce, or roast trout.

Cheese pairing: Parmesan or other hard cheese.
