No. A trocken kabinett will be kabinett due to ripeness level of the grape at harvest and will be trocken due to sugar level at bottling.

Feinherb is not bone dry but rather off-dry.

I'm out of this one.

Um, yeah. The designation of ripeness level at picking is modified to indicate residual sugar at bottling. The producer isn't naming the wine based on ripeness level because that doesn't tell you what's in the bottle.

Feinherb can mean anything from dry to sweet. But feinherb auslese indicates a dry wine in my experience. If you've had contrary ones then name the wine.

Doesn't seem like you like it. You want some more? The thing about drinking wines is, well, you have to actually drink them to understand. Lectures are great, brah, but if you don't actually drink German wines maybe you're missing something. Maybe? No?

Did four blind tastings with a couple somm buddies. I nailed all four today (a first) but was disappointed I was not presented with a Riesling. lol8[1].gif

Sipping the Rivata Barbaresco 2011 from today. I'll be honest, it's a tough wine to like without food. The mushroom gill aromas and tastes are a bit overwhelming at this moment for me. I was excited to properly call this wine as I do not drink a lot of Nebbiolo.

I don't understand how you can be so confident yet so wrong.

The pradikat levels have requirements for range of degrees oeschle which is the density of grape must and translates to sweetness of the grape pre-fermentation not post or at bottling

Feinherb isn't a legally defined term but it tends to be sweeter than halbtrocken which is >12g/L

And I also got the same lecture by a master somm at a tasting. Also had a fun chat about the same thing with Paul Grieco of the Terroir bars and tasted a few fully dry ausleses

You do know you can easily Google these things right? Unless you're trolling
