A dialectal name (new wine) used in Germany to describe a partially fermented grape must. The name is confusing because the wine is not yet fully fermented. The common names for partially fermented wines are Federweißer (Germany) and Sturm (Austria). See also a list under must.
As honorary chairman of the Domäne Wachau, it is the easiest and quickest way for me to access the wein.plus encyclopaedia when I have questions. The certainty of receiving well-founded and up-to-date information here makes it an indispensable guide.Hans-Georg Schwarz
