racking

Separation of the young wine from the sediment in the barrel, the deposit (also called lees). During the racking, the clear wine is taken out and pumped into another barrel. The remaining wine with the lees is used for making "Hefebrand" (a brandy like drink made with the yeasty wine). However, it can also be brought back to the vineyard and be spread there as organic fertilizer.
