19 Crimes Red Wine South Eastern Australia 2016 is a medium bodied red blend that is well balanced. Needed aeration to bring out the aromas. Flavors improved markedly with a little more time to sit.
Color: Vibrant red and maroon hues extend from the core of the glass.
Nose: Sweet vanilla and chocolate aromas are supported by fresh and juicy red berry fruits.
Palate: Full of flavor, luscious and rich fruit is balanced by layers of vanilla oak. Finishing round and soft with an appeal that consumers find very hard to resist and keep you coming back. - Winery
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 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 they culture they built.
