Availability of reasonably priced foreign wines may be an issue for you, so it is ddicult to suggest even supposing we know whether you mean a table wine sweetie or a fortified sweetie.

I suggest looking at some local Indian wines made from Muscat or Chenin Blanc in the fashion of Hungarian Tokaji (6 puttonyos of added of botrytized must).  An inexpensive Port or Sherry-style wine from Australia or South Africa might also do the trick; these are quite drinkable if rather too sweet for my palate (except maybe when I was a boy).  The real stuff (Sauternes, Tokaji, eiswein, etc.) are simply too expensive.

Marvrodaphne (a very sweet fortified red of good quality from Patras, Greece) may be available for the price range you seek from one of the larger bulk producers such as Achaia Clauss.

I have no usable pictures of particular wines from India, but you could probably find a reasonable dessert wine from Sula such as:

Good searching!

Of course, I add the remark that red sweeties are not the best if looking for table wines.  However, if you are truly fortunate in finding a supplier in India and don't mind the fact that the wine is not extremely sweet, you might try a Saperavi-based red from the Kakheti region of Georgia - a state in the Caucasus Mountains of eastern Europe. These wines are quality products if a tad rustic.

There's not much we can recommend, since you're in India.  you'll have to do what everyone else does: experiment by trial and error.

Buying wine in your world is a challenge from what I understand.

To help us, go to your local wine shop and get a list of wines the shopkeeper thinks are sweet and we will try and advise you.

Here is my suggestion: make your own.  Someone jokingly said add some sugar to a $20 bottle of wine and there you go.  But in reality, if you have a glass bottle (plastic water jug will do in a pinch), a balloon, a packet of yeast, and about 6 cups of sugar, you can make a really sweet red wine from grape juice in about 3 weeks.

 

Short of that, you will not likely find a $20 bottle of Tokaj wine, and that is the best in the sweet red line, in my opinion.  A port wine may suit you, and if too strong, add some water to drop the alcohol/volume.

Watering down wines for the kids, are we, tulaw?

I never really considered Tokaj a red....

dmcker, you are absolutely right-- tokaji is dirt colored at best ;-)

Anything sweet is really for the children no? In my book if it is not dry, it is not finished fermenting ;-)

Otherwise everthing gets watered down, usually it is just before you buy it.  Alcohol content is as manipulated as the network news, and you would not think twice about watering down gin, whiskey, etc., (any mixed drink is just watered down booze) so wine is the same.  In Germany, many people drink wein schorle, or wine spritzers, and that is the after-market watering.  The pre-market watering is done before fermentation in most cases, but getting the specific gravity to where you want it is all about manipulating the water to sugar ratio.

Check out the northeastern U.S.  Many of the wines offer a dry to sweet index.  If the index says it's bone dry, it's still sweet by international comparison!
