Sorry, no etymologies found.
There are two types of acidity in wine, pH, and volatile acidity (essentially vinegariness) PH in wine runs from 3 to 4, with red wines having higher pH (and thus not as tart) than whites.
I dump in too much vinegar and get predictable results (pool of liquid, overwhelming vinegariness), but skimping on the vinegar always leaves me thinking "This needs more vinegar."
Lately, I’ve been getting low-sodium tomato juice and adding a splash of McClure’s Spicy Garlic Pickle brine, which gives it some vinegariness and a little more spice.
