More Riesling from the ground up

SOUTH AUSTRALIA: Following a Winestate award for Australia’s best Riesling last year, Port Augusta’s Boston Bay Wines has cleared one seventh of its vineyard to double Riesling output in two years. The former chardonnay vines, which were originally planted as Riesling in 1984, will return to their former glory. Boston Bay Wines’ Tony Ford said his father grafted the vines in to chardonnay vines but they retained the original Riesling roots. He said they were sawn off at the base and would regrow as full size riesling vines in two years.
