I've had a few batches of wine brewed from kits, with some success. now I'd like to try something more complex, maybe making my own from fruit.

Anyway, I've had a look for recipes. And I keep seeing things like, "six months to clear, then bottle and leave for a year before drinking"

Are there any recipes you'd recommend for beginners, that take less time than that? Something that would brew and clear in a couple of months, and mature in about six or seven?

Maybe one with a mixture of canned grape concentrate and fruit. I like the sound of grape with peach, plum, pear, strawberry, or ginger.

No such thing as a quick wine. If you want quick you need to get into beer.

Patience is key for wine and even more so for mead.

Personally I don't drink any wine that is less than a year old and I am trying very hard to build up stocks and a rotation of sorts so I don't have to drink anything under 2 years. 1 year in the carboy(s) for fermentation and secondary, tertiary, etc. And 1 year in the bottle.

Meads my goal is 1 year in carboy(s). 1 year in a corny keg and then bottle. Drink 3-4 months after bottling.
