Among the terms used to describe the clarity of a wine —including "cloudy" and "brilliant"—is "hazy." It applies to a wine that, if held up to a light, has a slight amount of suspended solids floating around the bottle. If the wine was intentionally unfiltered or unfined, a small degree of haziness is normal; otherwise, it probably means that the wine has a flaw, since the majority of today's wines are fastidiously clarified. See also filtering or fining.
