AUSTRALIA: Domestic wine sales up, exports down
The government's Bureau of Statistics reported on Monday that domestic sales were up by 3.3% to a seasonally-adjusted 34.7m litres for September. This compares to 33.6m litres in August. Year-on-year, the rise was roughly the same.
Total sales in the fiscal year to the end of June 2003 also increased by 4.2% from 386.2m litres to 402.5m litres year-on-year.
Monthly figures for exports, however, showed a reverse trend. For the month of September exports fell to 46.8m litres, worth A$210.5m ($147.1m), from 53.7m litres, worth A$224.4m ($156.8m) in August.
The figures also show a drop in the value of Australian wine exports year-on-year. In September 2002, exports of 53.7m litres were valued at A$267.8m. The average value in September's exported wine was down from A$4.99 per litre last year to A$4.50.
In the fiscal year 2002-03, Australia exported 516.5m litres of wine with a value of A$2.42 billion. In 2001-02 the figures were 418.49m litres with a value of A$2.11.
