What's the best clarifying agent to use for cranberry wine?

I was thinking isinglass but it seems that's not available anymore. So that leaves... Kieselsol? Chitosan? Combo of both? I've read somewhere that those (or maybe just kieselsol?) can be harsh on wine and so maybe not good on cranberry. I have bentotite already. So looking for advice before I visit my local shop or put in an order for something they don't have on hand. Thanks!

I prefer time, but if forced to choose, prefer bentonite in primary ( and pectic enzyme too), and chitosan after AF / degassing.

I've had very good success using Sparkolliod to clear cranberry wine.

I usually use DualFine/SuperKleer if the sparkolloid doesn't clear it. I don't have any vegan minded friends or relatives. ;-)
