A full-bodied red wine that's a blend of shiraz and durif grapes. Aromas and flavours of cassis, wildberry and blackcurrant. Rugged (you'd expect such) so decant for 1 hour, but keep an eye on that bottle.

Reviews and Ratings

Lesley Quinn - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A big bold high intensity wine, with black licorice and blueberry flavours. There is some vanilla and chocolate notes from the time spent in oak, and some incredible tannins on the finish. This wine is so full bodied it demands a big meal like a Rib Eye in a port demi glaze. The 19 crimes refers to the time in England when any who broke this set of 19 crimes could face deportation to Australia. One of which included "Do Not Impersonate an Egyptian"! I love when you can learn a little something while enjoying a great wine.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
