  • I think it should be noted that perception of dryness is very different with high acid varieties like Riesling. Trocken can be up to 9 g/L RS by law in Germany, but that's only if acid is within two grams of the RS (i.e. for a wine of 9 g/L RS, acid would have to be at least 7 grams to be labeled 'trocken'). I'm not sure I would identify a German Riesling that was 6 g/L with equal acidity as off-dry. It would taste pretty dry!
