If it is in secondary, you are saying it is still fermenting, right? Once fermentation is complete, if you are not going to do an MLF, the wine should be racked, stabilized with Kmeta, then allowed to clear either with added clarifiers or on its own.
Once clearing starts, I would not rack for 3 to 4 weeks. Don't rack again until you see a sediment buildup. Every time you rack, you are introducing oxygen and you also will end up having to top off again. So, don't rack more often that is necessary.
