Question from a social media fan
How can you figure out a wine or spirit sugar content?
Our expert replies
Sugar content is normally listed on price tags in outlets, and at SAQ.COM (under the “Detailed info” rubric). The sugar content listed corresponds to the quantity in grams of residual sugar per litre that remain in a liquid after alcoholic fermentation. A dry wine may contain anywhere from 0 to 4 g/l, a semi-dry white wine from 4.1 to 12 g/l, and a sweet wine (such as a dessert wine) more than 50 g/l.
