Over the 15+ years I've been closely following Florian's wines the Unterstenberg (sourced from the lower part of the Kupp mountain, "unter" the "berg") has shed sugar, from a bit under 20, to then 15 and even lower. The wine is completely dry for 2022 at around 9 grams residual sugar. I love it in this dry / drier form, with the schmaltzy, glycerin depth of the mid-palate emphasized and defined by the acidity's cut and lift.

From Mosel Fine Wines, Issue No. 66: "The 2022er Unterstenberg No. 12, as it is referred to in the central part of the label, is a dry wine (with 8 g/l of residual sugar) made from fruit picked in the similarly-named prime Lieu-Dit forming the south-southwest facing, front part of the original Kupp hill (at the foot of the hill). It has a beautifully complex and smoky nose of candied lime, grapefruit zest, smoky bacon, ginger, almond, yuzu, and white flowers. The wine is superbly playful and refined on the palate, where some light creamy and juicy elements make for an appealing touch. The finish is beautifully spicy and herbal and already fully dry."
