19 Crimes 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. 19 Crimes Red Blend's palate is as marvelous as its story, making it a perfect drink for great conversations. 19 Crimes turned convicts into colonists. In the 18th and 19th centuries, British rogues found guilty of at least one of 19 Crimes were sentenced to live in Australia as punishment. As pioneers in a frontier penal colony, they forged a new country and new lives, brick by brick. Today, 19 Crimes wines celebrate the rebellious spirit of the more than 160,000 exiled men and women, the rule breakers and law defying citizens that forged a new culture and national spirit in Australia. Similar in character to the rogues on our bottles, 19 Crimes wines are bold and uncompromising.
