What is ‘Must’ in wine making?

The Freshly Pressed Grape juice?

Must (from the Latin vinum mustum, “young wine”) is the freshly pressed grape juice that contains the skins, seeds, and stems of the fruit. The solid portion of the must is called pomace and typically makes up 7%–23% of the total weight of the must. Making must is the first step in winemaking.
