NZ: Wine exports soar in last six months
New Zealand wine exports have surged by 64% in the past six months, according to recent figures. New Zealand Winegrowers said that exports of Sauvignon Blanc have risen by 93%, with Pinot Noir up by 62% and sparkling wine up by 27%.
NZW chief executive Philip Gregan said the 2005 vintage - which gets under way next month - would have to be significantly smaller than 2004 for exports to fall below these peaks.
The New Zealand export market is relatively small reaching 31.1m litres for the year to 30 June.
