The 19 Crime Wines are named after the list of offences that saw British convicts transported to Australia and their stories. The Brand have created a mobile phone app which brings these stories to life – when a phone’s camera is pointed at a bottle in the app, the character on the label becomes animated and begins to tell their story.
Very popular brand of wine at the moment, marketed heavily but this really is a gorgeous red wine. We love the cinnamon/vanilla flavours that come from the oak ageing, delicious and smooth!
Scores very highly on Vivino.com too: 4/5
Inky violet in colour with powerful aromas of vanilla, oak, grape jam and hints of baking spice. Concentrated dark fruit flavours are enveloped with the sweet vanilla and oak in the full, syrupy body. Baking spice, dark chocolate and hints of dark fruit comprise the lengthy, plush finish.
Lush on its own or will pair well with red meat dishes, pasta and game dishes.
