emaciated

Negative description for the overall impression of a wine in the context of a wine address. A wine described in this way has passed its peak and has more or less lost its fullness of flavour. As a result, the acids can also emerge more aggressively. Related terms are thin, bland, over, hollow and overaged. The negative climax is dead. See also aging, bottle ripening and drinking maturity.

As honorary chairman of the Domäne Wachau, it is the easiest and quickest way for me to access the wein.plus encyclopaedia when I have questions. The certainty of receiving well-founded and up-to-date information here makes it an indispensable guide.
