Technical term for a barely off-dry wine with just sufficient sweetness to be at or near the "threshold of perception" for the average taster. Many California Chardonnays, especially at the low end, are made in this style to appeal to the American public's sweet tooth. (Most frequently encountered in reference to sweetness, by the way, but may be used to discuss barely perceptible quantities of any aroma or flavor element.)
