Wine / Oenology / Viticulture
German term or phrase: grasig
Liebe KollegInnen,

bin noch immer bei meinen Weinbeschreibungen. Sowohl in der Kategorie "Geruch" als auch "Geschmack" findet sich der Ausdruck "grasig". Ich habe ein wenig recherchiert und "herbaceous" oder "grassy" gefunden, wobei Ersteres sich ja auf Kräuter bezieht. Weiß jemand von euch, ob es da noch andere Möglichkeiten gibt bzw. wie das unter WeinexpertInnen gängige Adjektiv dafür ist? Der Text wendet sich an Fachleute.

Vielen Dank im Voraus!

Thanks for the confirmation, Stephen. Still wondering if there's another technical term for it, but since you're a wine lover, you would probably know ;)

disagree  Cilian O'Tuama: could well be right, but if Dagmar already "recherchierte", I'm sure she already found your google references//"changing my neutral to disagree because of your brazen "unanimous"
6 hrs
  -> fair enough but I used the references to back-up a term already known to me as a "wine lover"//you appear to be more of a beer drinker & find your post-grading disagree childish
