Default Fermentation on low specific gravity

I have a question if someone knows weather a wine that starts fermentation with a potential alcohol per volume of 7% (SG of 1.060) will have a shorter fermentation period or stage than a wine that starts off fermentation with a potential alcohol per volume of 15% ( SG of 1.114)?

Sure, less time to ferment less sugar.

depends on the yeast but generally yes it will have a shorter ferment time
