Somewhere near the North Pole (depending on the compass you’re using)

Dear Santa

I hope you you witnessed my good actions this year. I sincerely hope that you haven’t witnessed any of my wrongdoings (Sorry for getting pissed one too many time)s. I even hope that you’re well and can find it in your heart to give me what I want. Ok, well maybe I haven’t been that good, but could you still please give me what I want on my Christmas list.

I know, I know, that Christmas is about giving and not receiving. That Christmas is about the young ones. Well sod them, they are going to get what they want, this is about me for Christ’s sake. How about turning your attention to the adults in the room for once. I want wine that is guaranteed to earn me some Brownie points. The type of wine that impresses Mrs Claus.

So here goes. This is my Christmas list.

To start with I’d like Huia Blanc de Blancs 2005. I just feel this may start the day off well. You know, just a cheeky little organic bubbles. I don’t want to subscribe to commercialism. Something a bit more down to earth. I know you’ll be pleased with me for choosing this wine.

If the next present could be Seresin’s Sauvignon Blanc 2012 you’d be a star. This little ripper sure does suit seafood, especially shell fish. Guess what, I’m having a shell fish starter!

Whilst you’re at it, a Fromm Pinot Noir  wouldn’t go amiss either. It’d certainly match the main course I’m cooking. I promise it’s not Bambi or Rudolf.

Oh yeah, one more thing. Could you please find it in your big red suit to leave a big bottle of something stronger, should the day turn to custard.

Yours sincerely


P.S. Enjoy the glass of wine I’ve left you beside the fire. I know it’s a small glass, but then every other bugger is leaving you spirits or beer, and I thought you’d appreciate something off the beaten track.

P.P.S. If you don’t give me what I want the reindeers get it!
