Records continue to tumble for Australia’s wine industry, with new statistics showing export values are the highest in a decade.
It comes as China reinforces itself as a boom market for Australian product, with a 51 per cent yearly growth marking the first time Australia has exported more than $1 billion of wine to a single country.
Data from Wine Australia shows a 16 per cent spike in overall value, to hit $2.65 billion between March 2017 to March 2018.
The volume of exports also grew 10 per cent in the same timeframe, hitting a near-record 844 million litres of wine.
Wine Australia chief executive Andreas Clark said it was no mean feat for a once-struggling industry.
