General description (also distinguished, tasteful) for a wine in the context of a wine evaluation or wine address, which is to be understood in the context of the description. This is used to describe a stylish, fine wine in which "everything fits". The term is also often used in connection with mineral. Related or complementary adjectives are balanced, fine, delicate and slender. The opposite are the negatively connoted terms obtrusive and vulgar.
I have great respect for the scope and quality of the wein.plus encyclopaedia. It is a unique place to go for crisp, sound information on terms from the world of wine.Dr. Edgar Müller
