Full Bodied Red
19 Crimes turned criminals into colonists. Upon conviction, British rogues, guilty of atleast 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.19 Crimes red blend bears the same traits as those banished to Australia. Defiant by nature, bold in character. Always uncompromising. It is a taste you'll never forget : Vintage and Image may vary
Dark red and maroon hues extend from the core of the glass as dark fruits, licorice and spice linger. The Shiraz is the brooding component that brings the core of dark fruits, licorice and round ripe tannins. The Grenache is focused in the red and blue fruits spectrum and delivers plushness to the final blend. Mataro brings the spice and finer tannins pulling the structure together and giving the wine drive. The wine is complex and layered in a soft approachable style.
Ideally suited with roast lamb, and red meat.
