From Victoria ‘19 Crimes Red Blend’ is a Rhone mix of Shiraz, Grenache and Mataro. Notes of vanilla, chocolate, plum and cherries with a hint of oak. It is made in an easy drinking style of medium dry, and if you’re just starting to try red wines ...this is one to go to. Good label and good story!
‘Each declared by his majesty to be punishable on Conviction by Transportation.
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 labour. 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 honours the history they wrote and the culture they built.’
