Sounds like its clearing
What was the gravity when you racked it and what is it now?
Can you share the recipe?

You can buy Ice wine kits or you can get fresh juice and boost the sg up very high and use a yeast that will not tolerate much abv resulting in a very sweet wine left over. What do you have available to you abd which way you want to go about this is up to you so ypoull have to tell us.
