It was 1788. Criminals were becoming colonists, thanks to new laws passed by the British Empire. Laws that would see the punishment of "transportation" to a foreign land, Australia, become a reality for thousands. Many of those who traversed the globe en route to their frontier prison would perish at sea. The rough-hewn prisoners who reached Australia lived in servitude beneath the lash. Pioneers in a frontier penal colony, they forged a new country, and new lives, brick by brick. Over 200 crimes could see you sent to Australia, this Shiraz celebrates 19 of them, because well, one must start somewhere.
