Description (also acid bite) for the taste of a wine in the context of a wine address. In this case, the wine, which is mostly dry, is characterised by a relatively high proportion of acidity, which can be understood as positive. Related terms are lively, crisp, play (acid play) and steely. A too high or inharmonic acidity is described with the negative terms angular, sour or pointed. The range can range from obtrusive to aggressive. Such wines also often show a tangy characteristic. See also other terms for such wines under acidic wine.
