ABSTRACT
Syrah decline has been increasingly seen and reported in many vineyards worldwide. In recent years, an increase in samples of Vitis vinifera cv. Syrah showing general decline has also been noted in Spain. Sixty-two samples of Syrah grafted grapevines with such symptoms were collected from grapevine nurseries and young vineyards between 2007 and 2009 and subjected to fungal isolation. Species were identified with morphological and molecular methods. Species recovered included. Phaeoacremonium, Botryosphaeriacea and Cylindrocarpon, as well as Pa. chlamydospora and Cadophora luteo-olivacea. The study demonstrates that fungal pathogens should be considered potential factors associated with Syrah decline.
