The spring-time grafting program

We have been reviewing what vines we have, what is growing well in which area and what is making the best wine.  The outcome of this is a grafting program for the next few years.  In our bottom blocks (closest to the cellar door) we are starting the process of grafting shiraz vines to Riesling.  In this picture you can see we have cut the existing vines near the base; this will allow us to graft on a new Riesling bud.  I will keep you updated as the process progresses.  Alternatively; pop out to the cellar door and take a look for yourself.
