About this deal

We apologise if we take a little longer in busier periods and we thank you in advance for your patience and understanding. Elusively named as a non-varietal blend (but I suspect a lot of Shiraz in this one too), it is not dissimilar to the Red Blend but carries a lighter berry fruit to cut through the heavier flavours and uses heftier levels of oak with clove, cinnamon and vanilla notes. It was recommended by a friend who said how lovely and full bodied it is and so I started giving it as gifts.

Luscious in taste, this bottle of red carries a bouquet of dark chocolate and vanilla aromas with deep layers of rich forest fruits including plum and blackberry. A liquid ode to our past, 19 Crimes is inspired by those who, beginning in 1788, were transported to Australia for a life of hard labour. The real nature of his crimes still remain unknown, but his infamous letter “A Voice from the Tomb”, acted as the catalyst for his famous ‘Catalpa Escape’. Gooseberry, guava, grapefruit and passion fruit are the mainstays and typical of a good quality Sauvignon Blanc.Upon conviction, British rogues, guilty of at least one of the 19 crimes, were sentenced to live in Australia, rather than death. Times were tough but these individuals were tougher and they overcame adversity and insurmountable odds to ultimately claim redemption. In typical Australian fashion, it is a Shiraz led blend, softened by merlot and given structure by Cabernet Sauvignon. When Australia was a prison island as opposed to the sunny barbecue destination it is now, committing any one of 19 crimes led to ‘punishment by transportation’ to an untamed, hot, diseased wilderness as it was seen.

This special duo includes two bottles of premium reds - Trivento Reserve Malbec and 19 Crimes The Banished - that will tantalise the palate with sublime aromas and full-bodied flavours.
