19 CRIMES THE BANISHED

A blend that is brooding with richness. Like the wine rations served on convict ships, every sip deserves to be savored.
During the eighteenth century, nineteen crimes turned criminals into colonists. Upon conviction British rogues guilty of a least one of the 19 crimes were sentenced to "transportation" to live in Australia, rather than death. 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 series of wines celebrates the rules they broke and the culture they built.
