The term “feinherb” is only rarely seen on German wine labels, but it indicates a dry-ish version of whatever prädikat is in question, sort of a halbtrocken.

Feinherb suggests a style part way between fruchtig and full-blown trocken, and this wine matches the description, finishing almost dry. Slightly minty notes on the nose combine with fla vors of citrus and melon in this lean, crisp Riesling. May be best with seafood dishes.
Despite some nice lime and slate aromas, this wine’s flavors lack minerality, and the result is a plump, easygoing wine, with apple, pineapple and nectarine flavors that finish a bit short. Imported by Chapin Cellars, LLC.
