Default Campden tablets

Question about adding campden. Last month on the 20th I added the directed amount of camped tablets (1 per gallon, so I added five). Well it is now clear and ready to bottle do I need to add more campden before bottling or will it be ok. Also no way of testing the sulfite level. Thanks in advance.

I generally "guestimate" the sulfite level by using 1 campden tablet per gallon at every other racking and at bottling.

If that's the first time you added sulfites, it wouldn't be a bad idea to use some more when you bottle, assuming you're planning on aging the wine for a while. If you're planning on drinking the wine within 6-8 months or so, I wouldn't bother.
