I have a question i bought a bottle of red wine yes2day called:

the naked cellar
premium cleanskin wines

NV Cabernet Shiraz
South Eastern Australia

and i opened it yes2day and drunk half (but before that it was in the fridge for about 3hours long) with my gf it was pretty good and smooth, so after that i still have half of the bottle left and i puted back in the fridge(bottle doesn't have any cork because it's cheap one cost $10baks) so next day i mean today i took the same bottle opened it and drunk the rest but i and my gf notice something is different in taste plus the most strange thing in side of the bottle it's have some black peaces of something, so my question is is it normal and i already bought that bottle with this black peaces inside or after night something happened!?

please somebody answer only who really knows hte answer

The wine is fine!. However (A) Red wine is best served around room temperature (This is how it is meant to be served not cold like white wine) because there was no cork it absorbed the "refrigerator flavors" that float around!. Wine is extra sensitive to these!. (B) The blackish pieces are called sediment!. They are very normal especially in an Australian big red!. Sediment in red wine is created over time by the breakdown of pigments and tannin within the wine!. Totally fine!. Not something you want to try to get in your glass so when you pour try to do so slowly and don't let the bottle get shaken or moved around too much!. Www@FoodAQ@Com

The black pieces is sediment!. Very common in red wines!.
The taste of wine is affected by temperature!. Shiraz should be kept at room temp!. (65 deg)!.
If you liked this wine and wish to buy again, you should decant the wine and keep in cool area of home and away from light!. It will then keep for 3 to 5 days, sediment will stay in bottle not decanter and taste will stay consistant!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Sediment, It's fine, Just decanter it, Strain it through a coffee filter, And enjoy!.!.!.!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

yes it is possibly grape skinsWww@FoodAQ@Com

I'm an Aussie!.!.!.!.The wine should've been OK to drink!.Like "smadaren" wrote; the small dark solidified pieces were SEDIMENT!.Room temperature is usually around 18degrees C(depending on the particular wine)!.Don't worry too much about a $10 NV(non-vintage) wine!.Why not try "Andrew Garret Sparkling Burgundy"-an Aussie wine-slighly chilled!.It goes very well with BBQd meat and other strong flavoured food!.If you can't decide on the type of wine you'd like buy a Rosé!.It goes well with all foods and is best chilled!.!.Good luck for next time!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

yes, its probably a little oxidized cos its not been corked properly!. buy one of those vacuum wine savers and u can keep the wine for a week no prob!. the dark little pieces u mentioned are probably wine residue - i!.e!. skin pieces as mentioned before

hope this helpsWww@FoodAQ@Com
