Default Growth in Wine

I have a few bottle of home made ice wine that were given to me. There is some type of small growth floating in the bottle. Can it be filtered and drunk? Is it safe to drink? What can the "floaters" be? Any replies would be greatly appreciated.

I'll have to try to get the pictures tomorrow during the day. I am having a hard time getting them in regular house light, even with a flash. Any suggestions on the best way to get a photo?

I guess you would have to ask yourself....Do you really want to drink something that has microorganisms growing in it???

Is it actually something growing in it, or couls it be sediment from bottling before it was totaly clear?

I got some pretty good pictures. The wine is a Blush Ice Wine. I gently shook the bottle and the big clump of "stuff" broke down into very tiny specks. Not sure what is going on. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Looks to me like it's sediment. Shouldn't be harmful, but I'm sure someone more experienced in the topic can shed some light.

its just pulp/sediment. When you earlier said it was a growth I was alarmed. It should be safe to drink but don't come after me if you get sick.

Not sure if it is pulp/sediment. When the wine was bottled the wine was clear, lighter and tasted very crisp. There was no noticeable pulp or sediment in the liquid. Any other ideas anyone?
