Australian Viticulture May/June issue out now!

In the May/June issue we summarise the many responses we received to our reader survey on the use of vineyard machinery. Find out how readers rated the performance of their tractors and harvesters during the recent vintage and what they are looking for in terms of machinery performance. We also present our annual buyer’s guide to grape harvesters.

Phylloxera is an ever-present threat to Australian vineyards. In this issue, key phylloxera control experts give some sage practical advice on how to minimise the risk of infestation. We also reveal the interesting results from a recent comparative tasting by McLaren Vale winemakers of heritage Shiraz clones.

Introduced by Coonawarra-based Ian Hollick, managing direction of Hollick Wines, this issue’s Varietal Report shows Cabernet Franc need not play ‘second fiddle’ to Cabernet Sauvignon, but rather, deserves some of its own time in the sun.

In this issue’s environmental feature we look at McLaren Vale’s new Environmental Management Plan, and other business advantages to be gained from taking on environmentally-friendly practices and initiatives.

A must-read is the Australian Winegrape Outlook paper for 2007–2011 which can be found in this issue of Australian Viticulture. It reviews the current market for Australian wine both here and overseas, outlines the future production and sales prospects for both grapes and wine and provides demand forecasts for our key winegrape varieties.

And in the first of Australian Viticulture’s interviews with Australia’s top-achieving viticulturists, we speak with the Bowen family who recently celebrated the release of its 30th premium Cabernet Sauvignon.
