Süss

“Süss” (/zūs/) is the German word for “sweet” and it is the category for all wines that cannot be considered trocken (/trō-ken/) or halbtrocken (/hallp-trō-ken/). Sometimes, the term “liebliche” (/lēp-lish-ǝ/) is used if the wine has no more than 45 g/L of residual sugar. If a German wine label does not say trocken or halbtrocken, you can bet it is süss. Süss wine comprised about 37% of German wine produced in 2011.
