TASMANIA: Tasmania's wine industry heads for record year
Yields have increased and Claudio Radenti, winemaker at the east coast Freycinet vineyard, said the total Tasmanian yield could crack the 4,000 tonne barrier, breaking all records. The grape quality is also described as "exceptionally good" this year.
This size yield could produce the largest volume of wine ever - at 2.8m litres or 3.7m bottles.
However, this year's vintage will not reach the intensity in flavour as the previous year, industry sources said.
