Swedish term or phrase: fatton
Does anyone know what "fatton" means in English? It seems to only have to do with wine.

Examples:
Vinet har ett långt kryddigt avslut med en tydlig, balanserad *fatton*.

Doften är mjuk och fruktig av mogna plommon och med en lätt *fatton*. Detta återfinns även i smaken som har en mycket tilltalande balans mellan frukt och bär.

En vit Bordeaux med sötmogen guläpplig fruktighet och frisk citrus–touche kryddad med lite rostad *fatton*. Bra matvin.

Explanation:
from the barrel

I think something like this came up before and someone had cask flavor which might suit the US better

Have to say I don't like cask flavor myself though, makes me think of caskets and vampires for some reason :-)
