19 Crimes - Hard Chard
19 Crimes Description
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 honors their brave contributions with the boldest expression of Chardonnay we could make. And like our legendary rogues, it’s a taste that’ll live forever in infamy.
Bold and strong in character, this deep rich and golden Chardonnay is filled with stone fruit aromas and a sweet textured palate. The criminally intense toasty oak notes have hints of butterscotch and honey balanced with layers of ripe fruit. This full bodied, powerful wine finishes with rich notes of butter and vanilla.
