sour wine

vin aigre (F)

Negative description of the taste of a wine as part of a wine address, He is characterized by too concise and already perceived as unpleasant acid out. For a sour wine, there are locally many different imaginative names such as Blämbel (Plämbel) gut Ripper. Hackl grinder. Heckenklescher, Scratcher, Coachman, Lentschemacher. pug. Rabiatperle. Rachaputzer. Reif biter. sorrel. bulk wine. Semsakrebsler (Simsekrebsler) Sur-hedgehog and Turks wine, But there are also many terms describing the acidity, which are quite positive or even desirable for white wine (see below) angry ). In contrast, there is a faulty or spoiled wine (see vinegar sting ).

Acid wine and its effects are the subject of many bon mots and often drastic exaggerating stories. One of them is the so-called Reif biter from the medieval Wien (Austria) from a particularly bad one vintage, Another not quite serious gag comes from Bavaria, where until the 17th century a lot of wine was grown, but due to not optimal conditions often quite sour turned out. Allegedly, the bells were rung in some communities at midnight. The purpose was for people to wake up and turn around so the sour wine would not eat their stomach.
