True wine is made from the must of freshly pressed grapes, but methods have been devised for sterilizing, evaporating or treating must in such a way that its fermentation is prevented and the must can be imported as grape juice, which escapes heavy duties placed on wine; such must is used for producing British wines after fermentation has been produced by adding yeast to it.
