Wine term describing a secondary fermentation occurring in the barrel. The result can be a minor fault if the resulting gas remains trapped in the bottle. This fermentation is intentionally used on specific cool climate wines to reduce sharpness. If carefully administered, the result can be a pleasingly creamy, buttery texture.
