19 Crimes Red
Price per litre:
The red blend bears the same traits as those banished to Australia. Defiant by nature, bold in character. Always uncompromising. It’s a taste you’ll never forget. Did you know that once opened, you can carry on drinking from it for up to 6 weeks? Yeah, we’re proud of that.

Nineteen crimes turned convicts 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 1787 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 celebrates the rules they broke and the culture they built.
