The sweetness of this wine comes from the carbohydrates that have not turned to sugars within the chardonnay. These carbohydrates come from the grapes that are used in making the wine. The particular chardonnay grapes have lower carbohydrates that can in turn change to sugars, this is also the reason for the lower alcohol % as alcohol is derived from the sugars in the wine.

The guidelines for assessing whether a food or drink has a high or low sugar content is that below 5% is low sugar, between 5% and 15% is average and anything above 15% is said to have a high sugar content.
