I'm assuming this is acid that would fall out during cold stabilization. ?

Do I still need to cold stabilize? I was getting ready to rack it off the sediment.
This is Traminette wine.

It's most likely tartrates, and if you're seeing that much now you should definitely cold stabilize.

looks like wine diamonds. This is perfectly normal in a tannic wine
