I would say that a wine kits instructions should be burnt while doing a ritual dance around the primary fermenter. Bulk ageing is simply a process of waiting and racking. After the primary is done, and after most of the sediment has dropped out in the secondry, a couple of different things can happen. (1) you put it on oak, and let it set in a the carboy for however long it takes to develop the oak flavor, rack it off, and let it set undisturbed, racking every 3-4 months until there is no sediment, then let set till you can't stand it any longer, or (2) Skip the oak, and do the above procedure with some other additive, or (3) perform (1) skipping the oak/additives all together.
I would skip the addition of the stabilizers, with exception of metabisulfite. Time will take care of the rest of it.
