In a mid-vintage update, New Zealand Winegrowers has reiterated its pre-vintage announcement that the wine industry is on track for a record grape crop in 2002. Speaking on progress to date, Philip Gregan, CEO of New Zealand Winegrowers said: "The vintage has now been underway for over a month. During March, the weather has been generally favourable in many areas, with warm temperatures and lower than average rainfall. This has provided good conditions for ripening and development of flavour and colour.
