Curious Wine Reviews

19 Crimes Sauvignon Blanc – 2019 – South Eastern Australia

What Stopped Me In My Tracks In The Wine Aisle – A recommendation from my wise older brother.

What Attracted Me To The Label/Bottle – My liberal arts education.19 Crimes turned convicts 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 prisoners in a frontier penal colony, they forged a new country and new lives brick by brick. 19 Crimes Sauvignon Blanc honours their brave contributions.”

Something Else I Loved About The Wine Label (Thanks To My Curiosity And Love Of Research Because of My Liberal Arts Education) – Prior to this I had no idea there were talking wine labels, but with the Living Wine Labels app “favorite wines come to life with Augmented Reality. Listen to history’s most interesting Convicts and Rebels share their stories behind the 19 Crimes.”

What I Loved About The Wine Description – “Light but unique in character…filled with aromas of passion fruit, grapefruit, gooseberry and guava…A criminally easy wine to enjoy in many ways.”

Review – As usual, my brother’s never wrong.
