Advent wine.

The first Sunday in Advent called for something a little celebratory in the wine department: enter this lovely little Spanish Albariño.  The Xión, 2016 Albariño (Rías Baixas DO) was just the thing for a crisp and chilly December day.  An intensely massive nose of tutti frutti-peachiness led into a superbly balanced, medium weight wine redolent with more stone fruit and tropical yumminess.  A lovely tipple.  Besides, who, in their right mind, could resist a label that looks like it is adorned with Christmas deccies and stylised snowflakes?  Not me.

Tutti frutti is a rather rare descriptor, but apropos.

Keeping it festive.

NHW: Tutti frutti was a popular ice cream flavour when I was little, don't know if it still is. Never particularly liked it, but very distinctive smell nonetheless.

Thud: 'Tis the season.
