At 2pm today, we'll open the doors to our Classification VII event in Sydney. Australia's 136 finest wines – as determined by the public – will be on show. The Langton's Classification event series comes around once every four years, there's no wine tasting like it in Australia.
On Friday morning we released the seventh edition of the Langton's Classification of Australian Wine. If the Classification VII wines are the class of 2018 then Grange is once again dux. Find out about all the latest Classified wines including the new alumni with four wines from Margaret River, three from Yarra Valley, two rising stars from the Barossa Valley and more. Explore Now

Bin 95 Grange Shiraz,
South Australia 2013
Penfolds Grange is the first amongst equals in the Exceptional category of the Langton's Classification of Australian Wine. Once upon a time, Grange was the sole occupant of the top tier. In the 28 intervening years, it has cut a swath through international opinion, borne the standard for Australian fine wine and beaten a path upon which many of our greatest wines travel today. Grange is, once again, in the Classification and we're offering the 100-point 2013 vintage at a special weekend only price.
"...that ultimate Grange experience. Oh, yes."
100 points, Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW

Required reading.
Langton’s Classification of Australian Wine VII - The Poster
The latest Classification VII poster is available to order now. Beautiful, isn't it? Our previous Classification poster has been a great hit with our customers and you'll find them hanging at the cellar doors of Classified wineries. It's a must have to hang in your own cellar.
