19 Crimes turned criminals into colonists. Upon conviction, British rogues, guilty of at least one of the 19 Crimes, were sentenced to live in Australia, rather than death.
This punishment by ‘transportation’ began in 1788, and many of the lawless died at sea. For the rough-hewn prisoners who made it to shore, a new world awaited. As pioneers in a frontier penal colony, they forged a new country and new lives, brick by brick.
This wine is borne of the rules they broke and the culture they built. And like our legendary rogues, it’s a taste that’ll live forever in infamy.
A beautiful bright red to crimson hues in the class, this wine has an intense profile with lifted vanilla aromatics balanced with ripe raspberry and plum fruits. The flavors are full and round, with a subtle sweetness giving a rich and round mouth feel. The vanilla aromatics carry through and compliment flavours of raspberries, dark plums, and chocolate. Plush tannins provide a lingering finish.
