There’s no denying it, autumn has arrived in the northern hemisphere. There’s a definite chill in the air, the trees are showing off with displays of red, brown and amber leaves, and the days are getting shorter. This is perfect time of year for wines which offer a semblance of warmth, be that rich whites or bolder, more tannic reds.
As we look to heartwarming dishes – tied together with seasonal ingredients – to keep the impending chill at bay it makes sense to alter our drinking habits too. Below are some great wines, selected by Decanter’s team of experts, to help you get in an autumnal mood and get the most out of the season.
