The growing seasons for Australian grapes will get altered! And climate change will be the culprit behind it. This is discovered by a new survey made by the University of Melbourne and the CSIRO.
And, this alteration in the growing seasons, in turn, will affect the wine styles that can be produced in Australia. According to the research, grape growers should be ready to see the temperatures rising! It will dramatically cause a shift in budburst dates — a shorter growing season and earlier harvest dates.
The research conductor, a PhD student, Leanne Webb says that the temperatures will have its highest impact in the inland regions.
