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 vinification, soil type, area, 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 much more components (such as alcohol content), are body and structure.
