sour wine

Negative description for the taste of a wine in the context of a wine address. It is characterised by acidity that is too concise and already perceived as unpleasant. For an acidic wine, there are locally varying imaginative names such as Blämbel (Plämbel), Darmreißer, Hacklschleifer, Heckenklescher, Krätzer, Kutscher, Lentschemacher, Mops, Rabiatperle, Rachaputzer, Reifbeißer, Sauerampfer, Schüttwein, Semsakrebsler (Simsekrebsler), Sur-Igel and Türkenwein. But there are also many terms describing acidity that are positive or even desirable for white wine (see acidic). In contrast to this is a faulty or spoiled wine (see under acetic acid).
