Definizione

Acid character of wine, a defect when it is very pronounced or aggressively reiforced by astringency; in fine wines it disappears with ageing. 1

Nota

The wine needs to breathe for at least one hour before drinking, as the initial onslaught of alcohol and greenness needs a little time to burn off. 2

Contesto

Sensory panels found relatively low levels of pyrazines in cabernet franc objectionable while finding wines with more pyrazines, such as Bordeaux and sauvignon blancs, acceptable. The difference was the fruit. Less fruit character increases the perception of greenness. 3
