what is this stuff floating in wine bottle?

danna | Apr 18, 2008 08:17 AM

I buy a cheap but decent Chardonnay from Argentina at Whole Foods for $3.99. I use it mainly for cooking, but sometimes I drink a glass before stuffing it in the fridge w/ a vacuvin in it. This wine almost always develps weird floating flakes of stuff in it that when fished out dissolve to a fine granular consistency.

Husband thinks something "is growing in there" but I don't think so. Sometimes this occurs when the wine has only been stored a week, and always w/ this particular wine, but is never present before opening. What the hell is it and is it still safe to cook with?
