General description for the smell and taste of a wine in the context of a wine address. This has characteristic, clearly recognisable properties with regard to the type of development, soil type, region, taste, vintage, climate, producer, grape variety or wine type (see a list under typicity). In summary, a "wine with character" also means good quality. Related, but more comprehensive terms or terms that include many more components (such as alcohol content) are body and structure.
