As we wave goodbye to our fleeting summer and change the types of food that we eat, then so too should we change the wines that we select, in order to bring out the season’s flavours. Alison Stephens of Wine2laydown  selects some bottles for autumn.

Emiliana Carmenere

Full bodied with bramble fruit aromas and ripe, dark fruit flavours on the
palate are nicely balanced with a savoury smokey twist on the finish. Price:
£5.75 per bottle.

Rioja Vega del Rayo Seleccionada

Attractive spice, ripe plum and cherry aromas with a deep colour. Modern and simple Rioja with floral notes, spice and chocolate. Soft and juicy. £7.00 per bottle

Looking for an alternative to Chardonnay?  Why not try Viognier Montevista Reserva Viognier (Price: £7)  it has the weight of a Chardonnay is dry with low acid and boasts scented apricot and peach with fine floral notes.  A perfect match for a fruity chicken tagine.
