St Croix produces a sweet bluish-red grape that makes an excellent table grape, and is also great for red wine. Very winter hardy vines with little or no winter injury, vigorous growth and good resistance to powdery mildew and black rot. Be sure not to pick the grapes before they are fully ripe, or you will miss out on full flavor- watch for fruit to turn a darker color. St Croix makes a medium to full-bodied, dry, deep red wine with soft tannins and good fruit aromas, with currant and other dried fruit flavor qualities.
