Rectified grape must concentrate

A special form of concentrated grape must; see under RCGM.

RCGM is the most commonly used abbreviation for "rectified grape must concentrate". Rectification is a thermal separation process for separating a homogeneous solution of two or more substances by repeated distillation or countercurrent distillation. This results in a concentration of all soluble substances. The result is a product without the caramel flavour caused by heating in other processes. It is produced by partially removing water using various methods. This is also the difference to concentrated grape must.

Various processes
