Did you add gum arabic to the wine? I wasn't aware it could get there without adding it. I've read it adds softness and roundness to a wine and is used a lot in commercial wines, and that it's an additive.
How old is the wine?
Please explain DE filtration too, I'm not familiar with it.
Sorry for all the questions. Someone will have answers soon.

Who ever added it must have used a lower filterbility type\quality for food industry not wine which pre filter the GA so it doesnt clog sterile filtration processing.
If it has residual sugar you may have to use sorbate or keep back flushing the filter every time they jam which I can only imagine how tidious it can be.
Why did he add it anyhow? Riestilng tends to have enough body\mouth even dry.
