racy

Description for the positive overall impression in the context of a wine evaluation or wine address. The wine is characterised by good structure with high overall extract and striking acidity. Related terms are extract-rich and nervy. The term "race" is also often used to describe a wine of high quality. Related terms regarding acidity are fine-acid, fresh, lively and sparkling. An excessively high or inharmonious proportion of acids is described with the negatively connoted terms aggressive, acetic, edgy, sour and sharp. See also under sour wine.

There is a vast number of sources on the web where one can acquire knowledge about wine. But none has the scope, timeliness and accuracy of the information in the encyclopaedia at wein.plus. I use it regularly and rely on it.
