The men featured on the wine labels are not those of fiction. They were flesh and blood. Criminals, artists and scholars. In history, they share a bond, receiving "punishment by transportation" for violation of one of 19 crimes and becoming the first settlers of a new nation. Deep ruby in colour with a purple hue, aromas of black cherry, cassis and pepper. Flavours replay on the aromas with an emphasis on black pepper and smoke that linger on the finish. Medium acidity and medium-high tannin.
