Once dry you need to
Degas
add finning
f-pac if needed
degas
clearing agent added
backsweeten
age will filter your wine
Fruit wines take at least 6 months to bottle and 6+ months in the bottle to get good "taste"
Just a general rule some age longer

I like to sweeten before I clear my wine as sweetening will sometimes cloud up a wine otherwise foolow schedule as above.

x2. can't forgot to add some sorbate and k meta after sweetening
I would add that Before backsweetening. Otherwise it may restart not giving enough time for the meta and sorbate to work.
