This colloquial term is used rather negatively as "(unpleasant) slightly sweet", "softly soulful and slipping into kitsch", and as a synonym for artificial, overloaded, fake and unnatural. In connection with the description of a food or drink, this means "slightly sweet". As part of a wine address the term is used rather pejoratively. But it is contrary to lovely (semi-sweet) or sweet not relevant to wine law. Not infrequently draws so-called Coca-Cola wines (Mainstream wines) a sweet or fruity Taste out.
