  • Pete,

    We've come to the conclusion that bone dry is not an effective measurement. Human beings, by and large, really can't perceive sweetness under 2 g/l, so distinguishing between "dry" at 2 g/l and "bone dry" at less than 1 g/l is not really possible. "Bone dry" is a marker usually accorded to white wines with high levels of acid and low levels of sugar (i.e. Clare Riesling), or red wines with low levels of sugar and high levels of tannin, I think (Barolo).
