South Africa : forecasts point to second year of decline in wine production
S

outh Africa has again revised downwards its forecast for the crop harvest in 2010. Estimates arrested in mid-February, expect to a volume of 1.243 tons, down 6.5% compared to 2009. This is the second consecutive year of decline, since 2008 was a record year for wine production in South Africa. With the exception of the Orange River region, all the wine regions have revised their forecasts downward compared to last January. The berries are usually smaller and looser clusters than usual. The extreme heat, wind, combined with shortages of water for irrigation and mildew attacks are are behind this decline.
This decline in production will reduce inventory levels for production, which should fall to 253 million liters in December 31, 2010 from 337.2 million liters by the end of December 2009.
