Default Apricot Mead Question

Question: First Apricot Mead. 1st Rack yesterday = 30 days, 2nd 60, 3rd 90 prior to cork bottling. Settling nicely in secondary - should I allow to separate this early or allow the apricot puree more time by rocking carboy a bit. It should clear on its own, I don't want to loose flavor. Very, very dry at this point. Thanks for any input. It is going to be a loooong six month wait to get a good first sample taste!

"A general dissolution of principles and manners will more surely overthrow the liberties of America than the whole force of the common enemy. While the people are virtuous they cannot be subdued; but when once they lose their virtue then will be ready to surrender their liberties to the first external or internal invader." -- Samuel Adams, 1779
