How to use "Dry" in context?

When most people think of the adjective "dry," they likely think of the weather. However, the adjective "dry" can also refer to a beverage (such as water) that is not sweet or acidic. In fact, a dry wine is actually a good wine! Dry wines are not as sweet as sweet wines, and they have more acidity which makes them refreshing and tangy.

Another reason to enjoy a dry wine is because they can age better than sweet wines. Sweet wines undergo a process called "malolactic fermentation" in which lactobacilli change the wine's acids into lactic acid.
