From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Langton's Classification of Australian Wine first released in 1991, is a grouping of high-end Australian wines compiled by the Melbourne- and Sydney-based auction house Langton's. The Classification is a ranking of the best performing wines based on market demand and vintages made.[1][2][3][4] The Langton's Classification is split into four categories; Exceptional, Outstanding, Excellent and Distinguished. The classification is currently made up of 101 of Australia's finest wines, to be listed in the Classification a wine must have a minimum of ten vintage years and also achieve high secondary market values.[1][2][3][4][5 ]
