How sweetness gets into the wine
As long as the grapes ripen on the vine, they produce their own sugar. This is converted into alcohol during fermentation by added yeast. The longer this process takes, the drier a wine becomes. Some grapes have such large sugar reserves that the yeast is used up before the sugar has completely disappeared. In addition, the winegrower can separate the yeast from the must by filtration. Thus it has a direct influence on the residual sugar content, which ultimately determines the taste of the wine. If the process is finished early, a wine has a lot of residual sugar. If the value lies between 18 and 45 grams per liter, the wine is described as medium sweet. Whether white wine or red wine. However, red and white wines with the same residual sugar content express themselves differently, since the tannins in the red wine neutralize the sweetness somewhat. For a sweet red wine with a noticeable sweetness you should therefore choose a wine with a high residual sugar content.
