November already! This latest pack we’ve been waiting to release for a while now as it includes 5 new and exciting wines and 1 old favourite.
The aim here is to lean into those winter evenings with richer reds in the way of an appassimento Cerasuolo from Sicily, creamy dark Cinsault from southern France & a juicy Merlot mix from Romania. The whites includes one of our absolute favourite wines in the shop… Heinrich Naked White field blend, a beautiful Austrian wine thats a mix of grapes including Welschriesling & Chardonnay, featuring ripe citrus & hay aromatics.
