That explains the sediments. You are supposed to allow your wines to clear before bottling.

That is the point of racking the wines. You rack it off the sediment (clear it) prior to bottling. Once the wine is clear, you can bottle it. You skipped the entire clearing process which then proceeded to happen in the bottle.

Throughout the fermentation process, I racked the must with the siphon 2 times before bottling. I also used the siphon for bottling (I guess I'm not so skilled at it.. ).

Sorry, troughout the fermentation process, I only racked the must with the siphon 2 times before bottling. I also used the siphon for bottling (I guess I'm not so skilled at it..). And the acid blend, pectic enzyme, yeast nutrient, yeast energizer, meta bisulphite that I bought are 6-7 years old.

That requires a level of patience I don't currently have! I have a blackberry port (my first "real" attempt at a wine) that is currently three months old that I've racked it several times already. I always feel like I need to be doing "something" besides waiting

That was me for my first year of wine making. Now into my second year the fever has worn off and I can bear the waiting much easier. Of course I also have some wine to drink so I can enjoy them and 'mellow out' a bit. Of course collecting bottle from the recycling center gives me more work to do to clean and prep the bottles.

Remember that if the wine doesn't set still long enough the sediment won't have time to settle to the bottom. At three months that wine should be just left to age while you start planning and working the next batches. I've got a fresh can of Black Currant Juice ready to start another batch in about a month or two. Meanwhile I have some peach and blueberry wine aging and some Zinfandel and Blush Zinfandel starting to ferment. Once you get a few batches in process you'll have enough to keep you busy.
