IMPORTS AND DISPOSALS OF AUSTRALIAN PRODUCED WINE


WINE IMPORTS CLEARED FOR HOME CONSUMPTION

In original terms, 7.0 million litres of wine, valued at $60.3 million were imported in November 2008, a decrease of 23.6% in quantity. The value of imports was 3.9% lower than October 2008. The average value of wine imports cleared for home consumption in November 2008 was $8.63 per litre up from $6.86 per litre in October 2008. This increase in the average value has resulted from an increase in imports of wine from countries with a higher average value per litre (eg France) and a decrease in imports from countries with a lower average value per litre (eg Chile).
