Sediment of a Port Wine vat

DSCN1325

Few months ago I made a post about the sediment of 2009 still wines. Huge amounts of sediment were accumulating in the bottom of the vats. At that time two members of our community, Andy and Derek, were wondering how the sediment of a 2009 Port Wine vat would look like. This photo brings the answer. Don’t ask me how is possible that it has waves and why is the bottom split in four quadrants. Maybe be there is a physicist out there that can help us understanding this!
