Organic Dessert Wine
Sweet organic dessert wines have more residual sugar and are produced in a variety of methods. For most red and white wines, the fermentation process continues until all sugar has been converted by the yeast to alcohol and little to no residual sugar remains. The resulting red and white wines are “dry.” There are three different methods used to make sweet wines:
-The fermentation can be interrupted, resulting in leaving a higher amount of residual sugar in the wine;
-a sweet component such as concentrated grape juice can be added to sweeten the wine;
-for some wines the sugar levels in the grapes – do to “noble rot” Botrytis cinerea – are so high they remain in the wine even after the yeasts are killed by the alcohol.
