From The Collaborative International Dictionary of English v.0.48 :

  Rack \Rack\, v. t. [Cf. OF. vin raqu['e] wine squeezed from the
     dregs of the grapes.]
     To draw off from the lees or sediment, as wine.
     [1913 Webster]
  
           It is in common practice to draw wine or beer from the
           lees (which we call racking), whereby it will clarify
           much the sooner.                         --Bacon.
     [1913 Webster]
  
     Rack vintage, wine cleansed and drawn from the lees.
        --Cowell.
