One reason you can't age most grocery store wines is because they have been through the
"micro-ox" process. This is artificial aging, meaning it is at its best when it hits the shelf.
What makes a win...

I found one buried in dirt and full of muck. It has made many good beers and wines.

What yeast did you use?

Lees help to prevent oxidation. Some whites are left on lees for up to 8-12 months.

It looks like cheese. I would taste it. It can't hurt you.

Do you have a piece of tubing? Just mouth siphon it. If you are using so2, it will be fine.We
use this method at the winery for smaller projects. It won't hurt anything.

I would put it in the basement.

I would rather have the sediment compact into one area.
