I had intended this month’s case to be a house party/dinner party/entertaining case but like most of 2020’s plans it’s consigned to the back burner. What we all need this month is a hug! This month’s case has six wines that can’t hug you but are characterised by their softness and warmth. The reds all have glowing autumnal berry flavours and smooth tannins whilst the whites have bright tropical fruit character which will put a smile on your face. Hopefully it is just the tonic we need to go with the cooler nights and something to accompany the passionate debates over the thermostat controller!
