Our 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.
Nineteen crimes turned criminal 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 is borne of the rules they broke and the culture they built. And like our legendary rogues, it’s a taste that’ll live forever in infamy.
Defiant by nature, bold in character. Always uncompromising. Witness bright red to crimson hues: heed the intense, lifted vanilla aromas balanced with riper red to dark berry fruits that rise in defiance from the glass. The vanilla aromatics carry through on the palate and complements subtle flavors of chocolate and a cedary spice. Full and round on the palate, with a distinct sweetness giving a rich and round mouthfeel. The palate finishes soft, fruity and so fresh, it should be a crime.
