No, looks like normal sediment to me.

No, and that would be a serious deposit of tartic acid if it was.

Just looks like pulp settling down to the bottom...watcha got in there?

White grape peach mix. No fruit 100 percent juice. Don't look like any sediment I ever seen. It looks crystalized. Mike

Has this wine been in your refrigerator or some place where it was chilled for a while? If so, then the fine sediment might be wine diamonds. Wine diamonds are crystals of tartaric acid that fall out of solution when the liquid (wine) is cooled. The colder temperatures affects the wine's ability to hold some of the dissolved acid and the acid crystallizes and settles at the bottom.

The smaller pieces-- are they crystals?

THE GOOD NEWS IS THIS-- your wine is drinkable regardless of what settled at the bottom after it was bottled.

Hard to tell from the picture...looks kinda blurry and fuzzy like pulp and yeast hulls mounded up...

It is like a small mountain range. Kind of resembles the little crystals that grew out of magic rocks. It has been sitting in the same place since I last racked it a month ago. The wine is only about three months old and I am in no hurry to bottle. Mike

I'll have to google wine diamonds, but it looks like the view from the tiny window on my last flight up north.
