I am making a kiwi fruit wine and racked it to it's secondary yesterday. It was pretty cloudy after this process. This morning I can see it is starting to clear already but there is already a cm or so of sediment on the bottom. I wasn't planning to rack this wine for another month at least but will it taint the wine by sitting on this sediment for so long? Any help is appreciated
Wait for at least 45 days (up to 60 days) before racking. The wine will be fine for that long, and then the lees can compact down a bit (and the wine can continue to clear) to make racking easier next time.
