So, I plan on backsweetening my fall Muscato/Malvasia Bianca blend and was looking for a general guideline for sweetness for Muscato. I am not a sweet wine drinker but made this for the family who enjoys a sweeter wine. Just looking for opinions as to how sweet you like your Muacato? Thanks!

I won't go over 1.010. Actually I would sweeten to 1.000 and taste.

Make up a 50/50 simple syrup. Take 250 mL of the wine
add 5 mL of the Syrup, taste it, go more, go less, and then do the math for the whole batch.
