19 Crimes Red Wine 2016
Proclamation: 19 Crimes. Each declared by his Majesty to be punishable on conviction by transportation. 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 the culture they built. 13.0% alc./vol. Produced and bottled by 19 Crimes, Australia. Imported by TWE Imports, Napa, CA. Wine of Australia.
