franconian dry

Name used in the German production region of Franconia for a dry wine with a residual sugar content of up to a maximum of 4 g/l. However, it has no meaning in wine law and, according to German wine law, it may not be used on labels. It is therefore a gentlemen's agreement of the Franconian wine industry to use the term "dry" on the label only if the wine has a maximum residual sugar content of 4 g/l. A similar meaning has Austrian dry in Austria. For the other flavours see under sugar content.
