The crush for all top 10 white varieties increased in 2021 compared with the previous year, except for Gewürztraminer, which declined by 4 per cent year-on-year, and by 28 per cent compared with the 5-year average. Prosecco showed the strongest growth, increasing by over 50 per cent compared with 2020 and by over 100 per cent (more than double) compared with the 5-year average.
The value of the 2021 crush at the weighbridge was an estimated $1.56 billion, an increase of $400 million (36 per cent) compared with 2020, as a result of the increased crush and higher grape prices. The overall average value increased by 1 per cent from $694 per tonne to $701 per tonne, the highest since 2008.

About the survey
The National Vintage Survey is a single annual crush and price survey conducted by Wine Australia on behalf of the Australian wine sector. This report has been prepared based on an analysis of the survey results.
All Wine Australia levy payers (approximately 2200 businesses) are surveyed. Respondents are asked to provide individual transaction data by variety and region for grape purchases and a summary of their own grown fruit by variety and region. This enables accurate reporting of crush (production) and price dispersion data by variety and GI region as well as at a national and state level.
