Dessert white wine, also known as sweet white wine, is a type of wine that is made from white grape varieties and typically contains a higher level of residual sugar compared to dry white wines. The increased sweetness is achieved either by allowing the grapes to fully ripen on the vine or by stopping the fermentation process before all the sugar is converted into alcohol. This leaves a certain amount of natural grape sugars in the finished wine, resulting in a delightful sweetness.

The flavor profile of dessert white wines can be diverse and complex, often exhibiting rich, ripe fruit flavors such as peach, apricot, pear, apple, pineapple, honey, and sometimes floral notes. You may also find some dessert white wines with hints of spices or botanical elements, depending on the grape variety and winemaking techniques.

These wines are typically served chilled, which enhances their refreshing and luscious qualities. They pair exceptionally well with various desserts, fruit-based dishes, and even certain types of cheese. The sweetness of the wine can balance the richness of desserts and complement the flavors of fruits and cheeses, creating a delightful harmony on the palate.

Examples of dessert white wines include Sauternes from France, Tokaji from Hungary, Icewine from Canada and Germany, Muscat-based wines from various regions, and late-harvest Rieslings from different parts of the world.

It's worth noting that dessert white wines are best enjoyed in moderation due to their higher sugar content, but they can be a delightful treat for special occasions or as a sweet conclusion to a meal.
