19 Crimes

19 Crimes South Eastern Australia Warden Red Blend 750ml



Presenting as dense with purple hues, this wine confidently takes charge with brooding aromas of dark cherry, blackberry, boysenberry, chocolate, mocha, and lifted vanilla bean. On the palate, The Warden is mouth-coating with lashings of criminally intense dark fruits supported by sweet vanillin oak and a hint of chocolate. The plush tannin structure provides persistence, balance, and a line to this rich and generous wine

Producer Description

Nineteen 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 the 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 celebrates the rules they broke and the culture they built.It would be a crime not to drink it!
