What does “vintage” mean?

The vintage year on a wine label is the harvest year of the grapes from which the wine was made. The characteristics of a particular vintage year are determined by the weather conditions and resulting grape crop for that year. Unlike many fortified wines (such as port wine) or whiskey, wines are never blended and are thus always from the same vintage.
