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.
For my many years of work as an editor with a wine and culinary focus, I always like to inform myself about special questions at Wine lexicon. Spontaneous reading and following links often leads to exciting discoveries in the wide world of wine.Dr. Christa Hanten
