What is meant by a “sweet” wine?

A sweet wine is just what it sounds like. Unlike a dry wine, a sweet wine still has considerable amounts of natural sugar following fermentation.

Because less sugars have been converted to alcohol, sweet wines may have less overall alcohol than their dry counterparts.

Examples of sweet wines include Riesling, Muller Thurgau, and Dolcetto.
