Description for a nuanced, spicy (mostly) white wine with piquant acidity in the context of a wine response. In this case, the acidity is well balanced in relation to the other components that can be detected in the taste. This creates the impression of a "constantly changing game" (acidity game). Related terms are lively, crisp, acidic and steely. A too high or disharmonious acidity is described as angular or acidic. See also under tangy.
