OTHER INFORMATION: Semillon is a moderately vigorous variety with upright growth on a wide range of soil types. Its large clusters are prone to infection by Botrytis cinerea. Well-drained soils with moderate vigor potential are ideal. On high-vigor sites, dense canopies can lead to significant crop losses because of bunch rot.
