AUSTRALIA: Australia registers record month in tough climate
Terrorism and its fallout have yet to impact on booming Australian wine exports with September figures being the highest month ever at 44m litres.
For the year to September 30, sales were another record at 354m litres, up 18% on the year before and at A$1.68bn,up 19% in value.
The Australian Wine and Brandy Corporation attributed the September increase to the start of the seasonal peak months around Christmas and New Year. It made no mention of the September 11 terrorist attacks in America.
The Corporation said that with improved availability, red wine exports grew more strongly than whites in the year to September 30 and reds accounted for 54% of the total with still whites at 44%.
Five markets account for almost 85% of the total by value with the UK dominant. The market shares are: UK 43%; the United States 26%, Canada 6%, New Zealand 3% and Germany 3%.
