Description for the overall impression of a wine in the context of a wine address, which can be meant negatively, neutrally or positively depending on the context. Such a wine is not very (too little) strong or full-bodied, but in contrast to the negatively charged thin is mostly to be understood neutrally. In connection with elegant or fine, or with wines that should be light and palatable, slim has a positive meaning. If a wine has too little body or structure for its classification or predicate, or even its origin, this is often referred to as "too slim" and is to be understood as a deficiency. Related terms of slim are filigree and light. A negative increase of slim is flat (colourless, tired, limp).
