Description for a wine in the context of a wine address, which is mostly used in connection with a wine defect and can only be interpreted in context. If it concerns the colour, it describes a dull, pale wine without brilliance and reflections on the surface of the liquid (see also turbidity). Various wine faults cause a "dulling" of the teeth or a "furry" feeling in the mouth, these are for example sulphuric acid firn and UTA (untypical age tone). However, the effect can also occur in wines with a high tannin content; see under astringent.
The Wine lexicon helps me to stay up to date and refresh my knowledge. Thank you for this Lexicon that will never end in terms of topicality! That's what makes it so exciting to visit more often.Thorsten Rahn
