This study aims to evaluate and compare the adaptability and resilience of current commercial scion/rootstock combinations, established, and maintained under both optimal and sub-optimal water conditions using a holistic approach and novel techniques. The model vineyard where the study will be conducted has been successfully established and is being optimised and validated for the parameters that will be studied. This vineyard is an important long-term resource in the study of water stress resilience and adaptation.
