Default Wine infection?

hi,
i've never seen this before in any other batches of wine that i've made, worried that it might be Flowers of Wine, any ideas or suggestion?
thanks in advance

Tough to tell from the pic, looks like yeast & foam to me. You might check this out for more info, scroll down for flowers of wine: http://winemaking.jackkeller.net/problems.asp

Yes, I would expect that that the lees would be full of the pectin and pulp of the fruit. If it's slowed down, I'd rack to another vessel and top up a bit and see how it goes.

it kind of reminds me of a keeved cider. If the mangoes were high in pectin and solids than the co2 could float them just like in a keeved cider.
