Negative term for an unclear wine with an unclean colour in the context of a wine address. Related terms are flaky, dull, milky, hazy, dusty, cloudy, opaque, impure and cloudy. The causes of turbidity in wine range from poor clarification(fining and filtration) to abnormal development and resulting wine defects such as brown break and black break. If the cause was a whirled up deposit (sediment), settling and subsequent decanting helps. The positive counterpart of blind is clear (clean); see also under opaque (non-transparent).
