Default what's this?

Hey guys! I bottled some wine about 8-12 months ago. Not too long after I noticed some funky stuff on the side of the bottle(they were laying flat. I noticed it in bannana/apple and bueberry. I think it might be sediment or something like that. I was able to get a few pics of the bannana/apple.
Just wanted some thoughts.Am I not racking enough or not using enough pectic enzyme. Or is it something else all toghether?

Looks like it didn't clarify completely.

How long did it sit in secondary prior to bottleing.

This has happened to me on most of my early meads

well, I racked several times and total time in secondary was anywhere from 6-10 months. I did use raisens in the bannana and I will not use them ever again because they break down and leave nasty sediment that has always shown up no matter how long it sits. I think the trick may be to simply leave them in for a few dqays a most and get every single one out.
Dinich, how are you now avoiding this problem? Just letting it mellow in secondary longer?

I usually use a clarifier in the 6th or 7th month, 3rd or 4th racking amd wait.
