Hi,

after sending our wine to the laboratory, they advised us to add bentonite to clear some remaining proteins.
We have two wines, a pinot noir (white) and a chardonnay. The pinot noir cleared up just fine after 10 days or so after we added the bentonite. The chardonnay is still cloudy. Any thoughts?

Thank You!

May be asking the obvious, but is there still CO2 in the wine?

What is the actual color of the wine at this point?
Sometimes whites have a tendency to appear darker than normal ( deeper holden") and not crystal clear.
