  • INTRODUCTION Wine grape crush surveys are carried out in the Murray Darling and Swan Hill regions annually to provide early and accurate estimates of the tonnes and prices of grapes purchased and grown by wineries. These surveys also provide information on the estimated tonnes to be purchased and grown over each of the subsequent two years, together with an assessment of the tonnes that wine makers would prefer to receive.

    The data is provided voluntarily by wineries on the understanding and guarantee that data for individual wineries will not be released. Only aggregated data is reported.

    DATA REQUESTED FROM WINERIES Wineries are asked to provide the following information by variety and region:

    Tonnes Purchased

    The tonnages purchased from independent grape growers.

    Tonnes Own Grown

    The tonnages the winery itself has grown.

    Tonnes Preferred

    The tonnages the wineries would have preferred to crush in the current vintage.

    Committed Intake Own Grapes, Committed Intake Purchased Grapes, Total Required Intake for the next 2 years

    The tonnages wineries are committed to crush for the next 2 years, and they would prefer to crush assuming no limitations on equipment, supplies etc.

    Purchase Prices

    The highest and lowest price paid for each variety and the total purchase value (post receival price, not including freight or end use bonuses) for each variety purchased.

    Tonnes crushed for concentrate and distillate 2012 vintage

    Due to the 2010-11 seasonal conditions, wineries were asked to report on tonnes of grapes crushed for concentrate and distillate. This data was again requested for the 2012 for comparison.

    DATA QUALITY Responses were not received from all wineries sent survey forms and some wineries may not have been approached. The absolute tonnages should, therefore, be treated with care. A proportion of wineries did not supply all the data requested. This was particularly true of price data and future estimates.

    The data has been checked exhaustively to eliminate transcription and analysis errors and to reduce, where possible, errors in data supplied by wineries. The data on the current vintage can be considered as accurate as possible.

    The projections are a snapshot of the views of wine makers or company executives at the time of the survey. They are subject to variation with market fluctuations and changes in production over subsequent years. The projections are imperfect and will almost certainly vary with time.

    DATA TREATMENT All data provided by the wineries has been aggregated. Under an agreement with the wineries covering the provision of data, disaggregation is not permitted. It is not possible to provide data from individual wineries.
