General description of a wine in the context of a wine address. It has relatively little alcohol and body and usually also has a pale colour. This can be quite positive for a white wine if it is enjoyed with a suitable occasion or harmonious dish. As a rule, a wine with an alcohol content of up to 11% by volume is considered light. Related terms are filigree and slender. The opposite of light is heavy.

There is a vast number of sources on the web where one can acquire knowledge about wine. But none has the scope, timeliness and accuracy of the information in the encyclopaedia at wein.plus. I use it regularly and rely on it.
