depends really on how much fruit you have in it.  .....
Plain meads (with no fruit) can be drunk at bottling time but they do
improve with age, 1-2 years.  100% fruit wines IMHO, should be left for at
least a year before drinking.  I have two batches of mulberry wine which
I'm waiting on.  Once i've opened one, I'll tell you!  :P
