19 Crimes refers to the British nineteen rules that if broken, upon conviction the criminals were sentenced to live in Australia, rather than death. As pioneers in a frontier penal colony, they forged a new country and new lives, brick by brick. These wines celebrate the rules they broke, which led to convicts to turn into colonists, and the culture they built. Join us in South Glendale as we taste these wines, and we can hear the historical stories direct from The Infamous themselves through their living labels.

 


  

2016 10 Crimes Hard Chard Chardonnay
Hard Chard honors the brave contributions of the women banished to Australia with the boldest expression of Chardonnay they could make. Deep rich and golden 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.


 

2018 19 Crimes Cabernet Sauvignon
Bright red to crimson hues, this wine confidently takes charge with intense lifted vanilla aromatics balanced with red currants, violets, and mulberry fruits. Firm and full on the palate with a subtle sweetness giving a rich mouth feel. The vanilla aromatics carry through on the palate and compliment subtle flavors of red currants, dark cherries, and chocolate. The palate is filled with dark berry fruit and the soft tannins provide a lingering finish.

2016 19 Crimes Shiraz
This full and round bright-red wine with crimson hues give way to a subtle sweetness on the palate. The criminally intense vanilla aromatics are balanced with ripe raspberry and plum fruits. The vanilla aromatics carry through on the palate and complement subtle flavors of raspberries, dark plums, and chocolate. Red berry fruit and plush tannins provide a lingering finish perfect for any evening.

2016 19 Crimes Red Wine
Loaded with jammy, ripe, sweet berry notes laced with chocolate and vanilla aromas. Tasting more jammy, juicy, almost syrupy dark berry fruit with plenty of oak manipulation. A soft, round mouthfeel leads into the lasting finish which features more vanilla and chocolate along with lingering sweet blackberry notes.

19 Crimes The Banished Dark Red
A blend that is brooding with richness. Intense lifted dark chocolate and vanilla aromatics balanced with blackberry and plum fruits. Full and round on the palate with a distinct fruitiness making the wine rich and mouth coating. Like the wine rations served on convict ships, every sip deserves to be savored.

 

2017 19 Crimes The Uprising
The Uprising, a new wine aged for 30 days in Rum Barrels, pays homage to Australia’s Rum Rebellion of 1808. Due to the Government’s hindering of the rum trade, citizens and soldiers banded together to overthrow them. A portion of this wine was aged in Rum barrels lending a warm brown sugar finish to this dark, jammy wine.
