Hi friends!

Can someone explain to me why after finning and sometimes filtering I still get
sediment to settle in the bottle.  I have experienced this with both reds and
some whites.  Any help will be appreciated.  Thanks.

How long are you bulk aging your wines ( in the carboy ) and what is your schedule
between rackings?  This information will greatly effect the answer to your
question.
