Default Sediment in secondary question.

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

You should be fine. It would take longer than that to get any off flavors from the lees.

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.

Generally, yes. You'll just have lots more topping up to do!
