Sweet / Dessert wines, sometimes called pudding wines, are sweet wines typically served with dessert.
There is no simple definition of a dessert wine. A dessert wine is considered to be any sweet wine drunk with a meal, as opposed to the white fortified wines (fino and amontillado sherry) drunk before the meal, and the red fortified wines (port and madeira) drunk after it. Thus, most fortified wines are regarded as distinct from dessert wines, but some of the less strong fortified white wines, such as Pedro Ximénez sherry and Muscat de Beaumes-de-Venise, are regarded as honorary dessert wines.
Example of sweet wines are, Ice Wine, Late Harvest, Botrytis affected or Chaptalization (adding of sugar).
