19 Crimes Chardonnay, Hard Chard, South Eastern Australia, 2016
Proclamation: Each declared by his majesty to be punishable on conviction by transportation. 19 Crimes turned criminals into colonists. Upon conviction, British rogues, guilty of at least one of the 19 crimes, were sentenced to live in Australia, rather than death. For the rough-hewn prisoners who made it to shore, a new world awaited. As pioneers in a frontier penal colony, they forged a new country and new lives, brick by brick. Approximately 20% of the prisoners banished to Australia were women. They served equally hard time and were instrumental in the founding of the nation. 19 Crimes Chardonnay honours their brave contributions with the boldest expression of chardonnay we could make.
