Can someone please suggest a suitable grape variety to grow in backyard for Canberra climate? Possibly a red and white variety to grow in pot if possible

What do you want the grapes for? If for eating, Waltham Cross is the traditional Canberra white variety.
Your best bet these days though is to find a neighbour or friend somewhere with a vine growing well in a situation similar to yours and grow a cutting from that.
I had great success with an Isabella which I grew for a friend along a verandah. Lots of fat black caterpillars, but a few visits each season with the secateurs wipes them out if you get onto them soon enough.
Thomson's seedless (Sultana) is a good dual purpose grape though perhaps not, if you want quality wine. Riesling do well too.
