I did find with some research that that are many reports of such die off; with varying reasons.

Too dry or lack of water, plants do not recover well.
To wet and damp conditions cause fungus issues.
Spider Mites attack and kill off these vines.

Regular pruning can help thin out the plant and improve circulation.
Mulch the roots to help keep them cool and retain moisture.
Fertilize with a balanced fertilizer but avoid fertilizing late in the season.
