It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas – and now it’s for real. Today is the day to decorate the Christmas Tree; we’ve waited until my daughter comes home from her first term at University and then we can do it as a family. I hope we don’t fall out about where the skiing penguin goes, and who didn’t check the lights were working and whether it’s the turn of the star or the angel this year – it’s all good, family fun!
So to keep me smiling, here are three shiny, starry whites to tickle the taste buds before we sit down to a reunion meal.
Villa Maria Sauvignon Blanc £7.98
Fresh as a daisy, whistle clean and deliciously crisp – classic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. Great with fishy starters.
Vale da Capucha Fossil £8.50
I am very proud of this Portuguese wine. It’s the Atlantic sea in a glass – bright and breezy and dry but with a gorgeous richness to it. Brilliant. Stun and amaze your friends. Choose something a little bit different this Christmas.
Tenuta Roveglia Lugana £7.00
This is a calm and soothing glass. A touch of sweetness softens the crisp acidity making it the perfect Italian wine to settle down with once the trauma of the tree is over.
Here’s to home at last!
