Tenth

Old English term (Engl. "tenth") for half a bottle of wine with the volume of 0.35 (for 0.7 l bottle) or 0.375 litres (for 0.75 l bottle). The name is derived from the fact that this is approximately a tenth of an American gallon of 3.785 litres. See also under bottles and wine containers.

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.
