Wines of South Africa says despite a low-yielding grape harvest last year due to…

Wines of South Africa says despite a low-yielding grape harvest last year due to the drought, the overall value of wine exports has shown growth. WoSA CEO Siobhan Thompson says while the volume of wine sold internationally decreased by six percent, the value of exports increased by four percent to nine point zero six billion rand. Last year yielded the lowest harvest since 2005. The value of packaged wine exported to China grew by seven percent. In the European markets, the Netherlands grew by one percent and Sweden by ten percent, but the USA and United Kingdom remained unchanged. The UK remains SA’s top wine export market, with Germany second and the Netherlands third. Thompson says the African continent showed mixed results, however, Kenya, Tanzania and Zambia showed strong growth with the value of total exports growing by 73, 35 and 33 percent respectively. Thompson says Shiraz leads the red wine in terms of export volumes, while Chenin Blanc took the top spot amongst the white wines.
