I got 4 Chilean Juice buckets from Consumers Produce yesterday. Taking SG readings today 3 are 1.080 - 1.090 but the Pinot Grigio is .995??? Like it already has finished fermenting. It is also very milky/hazy looking. Any ideas?

If it tastes good, I would rack it, and stabilize it with so2 or sorbate just to make sure there are no other bugs in it.
