Designation for the taste of a wine in the context of a wine address. The word has slightly different meanings in the German-speaking world. In Bavaria and northeastern Austria it means rather bitter, in other areas sharp or cutting, and all these adjectives are often used together. In the context of characterising a person, it is understood to mean unkind, rude or sharp (sharp tone), which confirms the meaning with wine.
