Positive description (rustic = rural-simple) for the overall impression of a wine in the context of a wine evaluation or wine address. It is a rather simple (plain), earthy and hearty wine that has an acidic and often oxidative note. Related terms of rustic are robust, as well as the negatively connoted vulgar.
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
