This is my first time with tomato wine so I wasn't sure if the color was too pale or not.
The color is a bit light, but I would expect a white or golden color in the end.
It's amazing that that many lees fell in only 8 days. That really surprises me, as that is a lot of lees. I normally rack whenever I get lees 1/4" thick or more, and that's usually only after 30-45 days after putting into secondary usually.
I'd rack pretty soon, and then top up and let it clear.
