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 : Vintage and Image may vary
Ideally suited with roast lamb, and red meat.
Full and round on the palate with a subtle sweetness giving a rich and round mouthfeel. The vanilla aromatics carry through on the palate and compliment subtle flavours of raspberries, dark plums, and chocolate. The palate is filled with red berry fruit and the plush tannins provide a lingering finish.
