Australia's wine export boom continues, despite continued pressures. Records in volume and value have been achieved for the year to 30 September, according to recent figures.

The Wine and Brandy Corporation logged sales of 689m litres, up 13% on 2004 worth A$2.797bn (US$2.116bn), an increase of 7%.

The continuing downside was the decline in average price per litre, A$4.06, a fall of 5.7%.

The Corporation also said that Canadian exports were a record in value terms while Denmark, Norway and Japan performed strongly.
