Black Table Grape on Verandah

The youngest of my verandah grapes but I am now not certain of the variety name. I do know I bought it from Peninsula Nursery and that it is a black table grape. I thought I had written it up but looks like not.

It is not a very vigorous vine but that is more likely due to the lack of water as it is growing in the car park basically. It is trained as a cordon with vertical arms. This is also to serve the purpose of keeping the verandah cool in summer as well as giving us some fruit. I will have to monitor where it flowers to determine if cane or spur pruning is best.
