March 2021 issue of Grapegrower & Winemaker out now!

Out in print and online now is the March 2021 issue of the Australian & New Zealand Grapegrower & Winemaker magazine.

This issue of Grapegrower & Winemaker focuses on the vineyard. In particular, viticulturist Ben Rose provides a ground level assessment of soil nutrition: how to measure deficiencies and what can be done do remedy these.

Dr Richard Smart argues the case for further research into the problem of grapevine trunk diseases, while wine buyer Beth Bicknell and viticulturist Dylan Grigg introduce us to the little-known Spanish variety, Grenache Blanc, and explain how this may have potential under Australian growing conditions.

In the winery, Sonya Logan speaks to three winemakers about their experiences with flotation and what they’ve learned to maximise results. We also find out about how automation technology could help wineries ‘get smarter’ when it comes to pumping wine.

Journalist Samuel Squire speaks to Australian producers of the Blaufränkisch variety, and for our Behind the Top Drops column, we head north to Queensland’s Granite Belt for the story of Robert Channon Verdelho.

Our Young Gun is Nick Odell, a WA wine buyer who’s now immersed in the industry and happily working as a ‘link between producer and consumer’.

And, with bottle design taking more prominence as a tool to encourage sales, winemaker Paul Le Lacheur talks to leading designers to find out exactly how much bottle design matters.
