Cool, Ripe, Warm, Unripe

Can a wine be RIPE yet COOL? Yes, of course.

2010 Wunsch et Mann Riesling - Grand Cru Hengst

Delivering tons of pleasure now, yet with great ageing potential ahead. Great verve and tension, yet impressive ripeness. Lingering on your palate.

Fantastic value for money.

Can a wine be WARM yet UNRIPE? Yes, of course.

2012 Artadi El Seque' - Monastrell Alicante

The wine very well made. Although not too "hot", it definitely tastes warm without real ripeness. It really lacks succulence and definitely has not a great backbone.

For me, absolutely overpriced.
