After racking my cranberry wine for the first time I've got small little white clouds in the wine that float to the top and some settle to the bottom. Is this something to be concerned about? What do I do?

I presume that with racking a bit of sediment has
come along into the new carboy.
These will form clouds when the carboy is
shaken and then settle again.

When the wine is treated with sulphites
there is at this moment nothing to worry about.

Wait till the wine clears some more and then
rack again.

Thank you Luc, I'm a beginner and learning.I hate to see 6 gallons go to waste. The wine doesn't smell bad so that to is a good sign. This was the first time I pre started the yeast. I thought maybe that had something to do with it.
