19 Crimes Pinot Noir, The Punishment, 2016
Red wine. Vin rogue. Each declared by his majesty to be punishable on conviction by transportation. Nineteen crimes turned criminals into colonists. Upon conviction, British rogues guilty of those crimes were sentenced to Australia rather than death. This punishment by transportation began in 1788, and many of the lawless died at sea. The rough-hewn prisoners who reach Australia lived in servitude under the lash. Pioneers in a frontier penal colony, they forged a new country, and new lives, brick by brick. This 2016 Pinot Noir celebrates the rules they broke and the culture they built. Download our AR app (hashtag)talkingbottles.
