English term or phrase: structure
Definition from thewinedoctor.com:
A tasting term. When a wine is described as having structure, the taster is referring to the tannin and acidity levels. These elements give the wine a presence in the mouth; without them wine would tend towards a flabby, fruit flavoured drink.

Example sentence(s):
  • Tannins originate from the skins of the fruit, the stems and, to a much lesser extent, oak of the barrels. They impart a ‘puckery’, astringent or sometimes bitter sensation to the wine. They also contribute to the structure and body of the wine. redwinebuzz.com
  • A better wine, then, isn’t bitter. Essentially, the tannins provide the structure for the wine to age, but a good, aged wine’s flavor isn’t overwhelmed by tannins. AgroTropical Spain
  • Pretty much all wine, irrespective of how its made, where its made or what grapes its made with, has certain things in common – it has fruit flavourings, it has acid, it has alcohol and, if is red, it has tannin. That’s it, that’s structure: Fruit, acid alcohol and Tannin. When people talk about structure they are talking about the interplay of these three things. Wine guide

rakenne


Definition from Alkon viinisanastosta:
Kun viinin kaikki aineosat ovat tasapainossa, se on hyvärakenteinen tai -runkoinen.

Example sentence(s):
  • Viinin tulee olla tasapainoinen tuote. Sen hapokkuus ja parkkihappoisuus (joista jälkimmäinen on merkittävämpää punaviineissä) antavat viinille rakennetta ja jämäkkyyttä: eräänlaisen luuston. - Viini-lehti  
  • Viinin rakenne on joka vuosi erilainen, lastuilla tammen vaikutusta viiniin on helpompi säädellä. - toinisanoen.fi verkkojulkaisu  
  • Täyteläinen-adjektiivilla kuvataan kypsinä poimittujen rypäleiden ja korkean uuteainepitoisuuden aikaansaamaa viinin tiivistä rakennetta. - Nautiskelijan viinisivusto  

Explanation:
Rakennetta käytetään yleisesti viinikuvailuissa ja -arvosteluissa. Viinikirjaa kääntäessäni olen käyttänyt sanaa rakenne structure-sanan käännöksenä.
