Nineteen crimes turned criminals into colonists. Upon conviction, these men guilty of at least one of the 19 crimes were sentenced to live in Australia, rather than death. This ‘punishment by transportation’ began in 1788 and many of the lawless died at sea. For the rough-hewn who made it to shore, a new world awaited. As pioneers in a frontier colony, they forged a new country and new lives, brick by brick. This wine honours the history they wrote and the culture they built.
The Uprising Red is part aged for 30 days in Rum Barrels and pays homage to Australia’s Rum Rebellion of 1808. Due to the Government’s hindering of the rum trade, citizens and soldiers joined together to overthrow them.
Medium red with bright ruby hues, this wine confidently takes charge with intense notes of mocha and caramel that compliments subtle flavours of brown sugar and cinnamon.
Best served with beef
