Negative description for the overall impression of a wine in the context of a wine evaluation or wine talk. A wine described in this way has passed its peak and has more or less lost its fullness of flavour. This can also make the acids more aggressive. Related terms are thin, bland, over, hollow and over-aged. The negative climax is dead. See also ageing, bottle ageing and drinking maturity.
Serious sources on the internet are rare - and Wine lexicon from wein.plus is one such source. When researching for my articles, I regularly consult the wein.plus encyclopaedia. There I get reliable and detailed information.Thomas Götz
