(€9.33 / Liter)
According to the German wine statistics 2016/2017, 1,673,000 hl of wine were declared as semidry according to the quality wine test. This corresponds to a good 20% of the total amount. With regard to the Moselle, the proportion is lower. Only 15% of the wines were classified as "semidry". This also applies almost exactly to our winery.
According to the Wine Act, semidry wine may contain a maximum of 9 to 18 g/l of residual sugar. Specifically, this means that the wine still contains a certain amount of unfermented sugar. During fermentation, the sugar is converted into alcohol. The later the fermentation process is stopped, the drier the wines become. In order for the wine to be classified as "semidry", it must be within the above range.
In addition to the residual sugar, the acidity must also be taken into account. In the case of semidry wine, the residual sugar content must not exceed the acid content by more than 10 g/l. Because in addition to the sugar, which gives these wines a slight residual sweetness, the acidity has a decisive influence on the taste. If the acidity is high, the wine can also taste dry. Conversely, the wine gets a much sweeter character when the acidity is low.
