In German-speaking countries, a common designation for a certain content of residual sugar in wine, which can optionally be indicated on the label (the term semi-sweet used in the past is no longer permissible). In Germany and Austria, this applies to wines if the value exceeds the value valid for semi-dry (12 g/l or, depending on the acidity, 18 g/l), but does not exceed 45 g/l (from then on, the flavour sweet applies). See for the other flavours under sugar content.
The Wine lexicon helps me to stay up to date and refresh my knowledge. Thank you for this Lexicon that will never end in terms of topicality! That's what makes it so exciting to visit more often.Thorsten Rahn
