Langton's Vintage Chart is a quick reference guide to the vintage for 52 of Australia’s most important regional wine styles, year-by-year. Listed by state and scored out of ten, the vintage rating is based on the weather conditions that had the most impact on the growing season and harvest in that region, that year. For ease of reference, the chart also comprises individual vintage ratings for Australia’s two most iconic wines; Penfolds Grange and Henschke Hill of Grace.
The vintage chart’s numerical rating out of 10 serves as a summary of the conditions that will have influenced the overall style of the wines from that region in that year.
It is important to note that individual producers may still make outstanding wines even from difficult vintages, as quality is also dependent on key decisions made in the vineyard and winery preceding and during vintage.
