Your vine may recover after the sweltering temperatures disappear. The heat radiating off the wall and the wire support have caused the vine to suffer. If temperatures remain hot, perhaps you can create a makeshift cover (either shadecloth or a sheet) to protect the vine or spray it with an anti-transpirant such as Yates Waterwise DroughtShield. This product acts as a sunscreen, lasts up to 60 days and is bio-degradable. Ensure the plant is well watered and apply seaweed extract on a weekly basis.
