Vitis 'Cabernet Franc'
This is a classic French Claret Grape, producing small black fruits which ripen late in the season.
The dark purple-red grapes produce superb wine with a delicious blackcurrant note, and makes a refreshing juice if sweetened.
Eventual Height: 1.8m and Spread: 1.5m (5’).
Untrained plants may reach up to 8m (26').
Grape Vines need to be pruned hard in winter to keep them under control. Prune while growth is completely absent. Can be grown both outdoors or in greenhouse, polytunnel or conservatory. Water well during dry spells.
