A liquid ode to our past, 19 Crimes is inspired by those who, beginning in 1788, were transported to Australia for a life of hard labor. Many did not survive the journey. For the sea-beaten people who made it ashore, a new world awaited.
As pioneers in a harsh frontier colony, they forged fresh pathways and built new lives from their chequered pasts, brick by brick.
This wine honors the history they wrote and the culture they built.
The Uprising pays homage to Australia’s “Rum Rebellion” of 1808. Due to the Government’s hindering of the rum trade, the rebellion was the only time a group of soldiers and citizens banded together to overthrow the Government. A portion of this wine has thus been aged for 30 days in rum barrels and is dark with jammy flavors and a smoky finish.
A medium red color with bright ruby hues. It has an intense nose of lifted mocha, sweet spice, and raspberry fruit. This is a full and round wine, with a mocha and spice sweetness giving a rich and round mouth feel. Subtle flavours of brown sugar and cinnamon, with a plush finish filled with jammy blackberry and raspberry.
