When you look to wine there are two major things that will come along. How is your mood and how is your moment.
For example i like to drink some sherry now and then. Kind of you having the mood for it. And then one sunny day you have the moment to drink it. A nice Fino or Manzanilla. Maybe the weather is more rainy and cold. Then your mood will tell you to drink some Amontillado or PX. ( there’s one question i allways ask why are these sherry bottles so big ? ).
Sometimes you feel like to have a nice Burgundy. for me mostly when i have the conversation with my friend Murphy (me,myself and I) A special meeting in which you ask your self. where you are and what you still need to learn! Do you have to restudy Germany or dive in to the wine world of Thailand. This will depend on your mood again. If your in the mood for Riesling than you know what the answer will be.
And yes sometimes you don’t have to have the mood for some wine but you fall in an opportunity. A nice year, a special bottle or brand. But then again you have the mood to taste them and the moment to do so.
