  1. Place grape juice in a heavy saucepan over medium high heat. Bring it to a boil and immediately reduce heat to medium low. Allow juice to simmer on low until reduced by half about 12-15 minutes. Remove from heat and cool.
  2. Add the lime juice, zest and ginger into the warm grape juice. Pour juice into a container, cover and refrigerate. Prepare in advance to allow flavors to combine and for juice to cool.
  3. In a trifle bowl or clear container, layer the fruit starting with the grapes, pineapple, strawberries and cantaloupe, ending with the blackberries.
  4. Pour the chilled grape, ginger and lime syrup over fruit, cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes. Syrup will color the fruit purple and create a bolder flavor the longer the fruit sits in the syrup. Serve chilled.
