The Uprising, a new wine from 19 Crimes that is aged for 30 days in Rum Barrels, pays homage to Australia’s Rum Rebellion of 1808. Due to the Government’s hindering of the rum trade, citizens and soldiers banded together to overthrow them. A portion of this wine is aged in Rum barrels, lending a warm brown sugar finish to this dark jammy wine.
Nineteen 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. This wine is borne of the rules they broke and the culture they built. And like our legendary rogues, it’s a taste that’ll live forever in infamy.
