Developed in the 1920's in France, this variety is sometimes known as Seyve-Villard. UK growers have given it the nickname 'Save All' because of its excellent reliability and good resistance to disease. It crops heavily, even producing good crops of small white fruits in cooler years.
It is a good 'all rounder' - used extensively for making wine it is also excellent as an eating grape with a pleasant sharp finish.
