The process of separating the clear wine from the solid elements suspended in the wine. The wine is left to settle for a period of time during which the solids sink to the bottom of the container. The clear wine is then drawn off the solids and transferred to another container. Sometimes fining agents are used to help the solid particles settle out before racking.

Residual sugar:
The amount of sugar left in a wine at bottling.

A dry white wine made in Greece, mostly from the Savatiano grape, to which pine resin has been added.

It is exceptional when a vinegrower manages to harvest when all his grapes are perfectly mature. Perfect ripeness is quiet unusual.

Means full-bodied, intense and vigorous, possibly a bit overblown.
