Feinherb

In addition to the three regulated categories of sweetness, trocken, halbtrocken, and süss, the term “feinherb” (/fīn-herb/) can also be found on German wine bottles. It is an unregulated term but it usually describes wine that is halbtrocken or just slightly too sweet to be called halbtrocken. If you see a German wine that is described as feinherb, you can know that it is neither dry nor very sweet, but somewhere in between.
