Term 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 a young, unripe wine that is still developing, but also for an acidic wine made from unripe or over-pressed grapes. An Austrian dialect expression is "greaneln" (greening - from "grean" for green). Related terms are grasig and pfeffrig. Regarding wine or grape colour, see under colour.
The Wine lexicon helps me to stay up to date and refresh my knowledge. Thank you for this Lexicon that will never end in terms of topicality! That's what makes it so exciting to visit more often.Thorsten Rahn
