chunky, sharp-edged (GB)

Description (also angular, hard, rugged, brittle) for a wine in the context of a wine address. This wine is characterised by a high content of acid and/or tannins with astringent effect. This is mainly due to the pungent taste of malic acid, the proportion of which is high in unripe grapes. From a certain extent this is to be understood rather negatively. Related terms are sour and strict.
