19 Crimes – The Uprising Red 202019 Crimes – The Uprising Red 2020
South Eastern Australia
The name of this wine comes from nineteen crimes that turned criminals into colonists.
The criminals were some men who were convicted of at least one of the 19 crimes.
They were sentenced to live in Australia instead of death.
This happened in 1788 and was called, ‘punishment by transportation’.
Many of them died at sea. However, for those who made it to shore, there was a new world awaiting them.
As pioneers in an unexplored colony, they created a new country and new lives, brick by brick.
This wine pay tribute to their history and culture and pays respect to Australia’s Rum Rebellion of 1808.
As the government delayed the rum trade, citizens and soldiers got united to defeat them.
The Uprising Red 2020 is part aged for 30 days in Rum Barrels.
This wine has a warm brown sugar finish and dark jammy flavours.
D’Arenberg The Dead Arm Shiraz 2017D’Arenberg The Dead Arm Shiraz 2017
D’Arenberg The Dead Arm Shiraz 2017 takes its name from Dead Arm which is a vine disease caused by the fungus Eutypa Lata that randomly affects vineyards all over the world. Often affected vines are either severely trimmed or replanted.
One half, or one ‘arm’ of the vine slowly reduces to dead wood. That side may be lifeless and stiff, but the grapes on the other side show amazing intensity although they are low in production.

To maintain this wine’s long fine acidity, we avoided malolactic fermentation on purpose, and traditional white wine fermentation was done.
The wine was matured in French oak barrels, 20% of which is new.
