One of the best grape vines for wine making….
Is this Madelaine Sylvaner, which produces a fine sparkling hock type white wine.
Ripening mid-late Season the bunches are of very good quality and should be left as late as possible before harvest.
Madelaine Sylvaner is a hardy outdoor grape that is even suitable for growing in Northern areas provided with a warm sunny wall, and still produced fruits with sufficient flavour and sugars to make a good lively well rounded wine.
This was one of the first grape varieties we started growing for wine production, some 30 years ago and still tops the list of most-recommended. It will also bear good crops in a large container and suits intensive growing systems.
It can also be used for dessert when fully ripe.
