Default Filtering wine

Hi fellow brewers.
I'm just getting back into the homebrew hobby after several years of abscence and would like members advice about filtering wine equipment

Which filtration equipment do you all recommend to increase general clarity of wines. I've been looking at vinebrite stuff and also the electric filtration units
Any advice would be gratefully received

Many thanks

I have found the Harris Vinbrite very inconsistent using their original crystalbrite pads. However their newer filtabrite pads are much better. Nonetheless the wine must already have been fined, which usually gives an acceptable clarity, but after long term storage you tend to get a small deposit, which is much less likely to happen if filtered.
Established Vines: Chardonnay, (10 gals) Wrotham pinot, (3 gal) Cabernet sauvignon, (0.5 gals).
New Vines: Riesling.
Apple: 1 mature tree, variety unknown, (15 gals).
Small vineyard, currently 20 pinot noir, 4 rondo, 1 bacchus, 8 riesling, 2 dunkelfelder, 3 brandt, 3 regent, 2 flame, 3 strawberry grape, 1 phoenix, 3 vrogen van der laan, 1 chasselas dore, 4 chardonnay, 8 frankenthaler, 4 pinot blanc, 10 cabernet sauvignon, 2 Marechal Foch. 1 semillion, 4 madeleine angevine
