Description (also lively, refreshing) for the taste of a wine in the context of a wine evaluation or wine address. These are mostly dry wines with fresh, harmonious acidity or acidity play. Related terms, which also have a positive connotation, are fine-acidic, fresh, lively, nervous, racy, tangy, tart, acidic, tangy and steely. An excessively high or inharmonious proportion is described with the negatively connotated terms aggressive, acetic, edgy, sour and sharp. These can indicate a wine defect such as acetic souring.
There is a vast number of sources on the web where one can acquire knowledge about wine. But none has the scope, timeliness and accuracy of the information in the encyclopaedia at wein.plus. I use it regularly and rely on it.Sigi Hiss
