Sweet wines

Since we understand everything in the mechanism of alcoholic fermentation , how can we explain that sweet wines still have as much alcohol but even more sugar?
The answer is simple: the date of harvest! The longer we leave the vines to feed our grapes, the higher the sugar concentrations will be and the more the residual sugar in the final wine will be!

If we wait long enough, the grapes begin to lose water: therefore the concentrations increase even more! With a fine weather we can make late harvests at the end of October and get very sweet wines.
