Designation for the smell or taste in the context of a wine address. Such a wine has a taste of green plants or grass. The term can have both a positive and a negative meaning in the context of the rest of the description. It is used, for example, for a young, unripe wine that can still develop, but also for an acid-accentuated wine made from unripe or overly pressed grapes. An Austrian dialect expression is "greaneln" (to green - from "grean" for green). Related terms are grassy and peppery. For wine or grape colour, see colour.
