Incorrect example?

Does "L'eau est assez fraîche" translate to "The water is quite fresh?" Rather than quite cold?

This question relates to:
French lesson "Frais, long, favori, rigolo have irregular feminine forms (adjectives)"

Hi Tamani - "frais" can mean various things depending on the context. It was food then "fresh" might be the right translation but in the context of water it's more likely to mean chilled/cool (but not necessarily) . It could also mean fresh in the sense of "new" ("des nouvelles fraîches" = fresh news).
