The language of wine contains a wealth of meanings that are not all too familiar, particularly the technical interpretations. The glossary describes and offers an explanation to the most common terms.

trocken

Definition:dry

EU wine legislation has the following regulations for dryness: up to 4 g/l residual sugar, or up to a maximum of 9 g/l if the total acidity is no more than 2 g/l below the value of the residual sugar. It is perhaps easier to remember acidity + 2 (max. 9 g/l residual sugar).
