Nineteen Crimes turned criminals into colonists. Upon conviction, British citizens, guilty of at least one of the 19 crimes, were sentenced to live in Australia, rather than death. Approximately twenty percent of those banished to Australia were women. As pioneers in a frontier colony, the forged a new country and new lives, brick by brick. This wine honours the history they wrote and the culture they built.
Bold and strong in character, this deep rich and golden Chardonnay is filled with stone fruit aromas and a sweet textured palate. The criminally intense toasty oak notes have hints of butterscotch and honey balanced with layers of ripe fruit. This full bodied, powerful wine finishes with rich notes of butter and vanilla.
