To begin the rejuvenation process, the strong, hydraulic vine shears will cut back the cordons close to the crown of the vine, leaving a group of canes to later be cane pruned.
The open wounds will then be dressed within 24 hours.
During the first stage of the rejuvenation process, the cordon wire will be cut along with the cordons and removed during rubbish disposal.
Re-wiring will later be completed.
Trunk rejuvenation is carried out in the second stage of re-working the vine to ensure the removal of eutypa. The vine shears will make a clean, single cut at the trunk of the vine.
The open wound will then be dressed within 24 hours.
