How do you make a semi-dry wine?

First of all : A grape is a fruit, and a very sweet one ! Once harvested, pressed and put in vats, the juice begins to ferment quickly: the natural yeasts begin to eat the sugar and transform it into alcohol: it is the alcoholic fermentation!
With a little patience, they will eat all the sugar and the final wine will be dry!

To obtain a sweet wine, it is about timing : before the end of the fermentation, the temperature of the tank is lowered around 4 ° C, so the yeasts die and the wine will retain natural residual sugars which will make it semi-dry or sweet.

> Still more sweet but so much alcohol?
