AUSTRALIA: Wine harvest down by 10%
The Federation said that the fall in production was due to drought conditions across most wine regions and cool weather during initial bud formation.
Red grape production fell by 5% to 802,000 tons, while white grape production was 16% down at 558,000 tons.
"With only limited plantings of white grapes in recent years, the seasonal conditions were always going to impact most heavily on whites," said WFA policy director, Stephen Strachan.
