Weekly wine defined: Troken

August 26th, 2013 by brynn grimley

Translated, trocken means dry — as in July was very trocken.

But in Germany it’s an official term applied to wines with no more  than 0.9 percent residual sugar.

Halbtrocken are wines that are half dry or in this country, off dry, meaning officially no more than 1.8 percent residual sugar.
