Designation for a trigeminal
feeling filling the entire mouth area for the overall impression of a wine in the context of a wine address
. This is not a classical taste or smell impression, but a tactile
mouth feeling perceived by the mucous membranes. It is triggered by a full-bodied
(rich in alcohol and extract), acidic
wine and is often accompanied by a refreshing, tangy
feeling. Related terms or those that reinforce or supplement the powerful impression are "taut" and "the wine has a draught".
