Spanish term or phrase: picada
Hola, quisiera preguntar si alguien sabe cómo se dice "picada" en inglés. La picada es la parte de abajo de una botella de vino, como el "hoyo" que se le hace desde el fondo hacia adentro. Hay algunas que no tienen pero muchas si. La idea es que los sedimentos del vino se aconchen en el espacio que queda al fondo.
Ojalá me puedan ayudar, gracias!
