What does it mean when a wine is described as 'crunchy'?

Crunchy is a new term most often used to describe red wines that are light in color, high in acidity, and low in alcohol. You can use it to describe red wines like Beaujolais, some styles of syrah, or other reds that are made with whole cluster and carbonic maceration.

It’s the opposite of juicy. Juicy reflects a richness while crunchy reflects a freshness in a wine. For example: “Wow, this wine tastes like roses and pepper– it’s crisp, it’s crunchy!”
