CRIMES AND COUNT­ING

Wine & Dine - - APERITIFS -

Crime never pays—well, not un­less it’s 19 Crimes, the un­con­ven­tional wine brand that has won over Aus­tralia and the US. Ad­mit­tedly, there’s a fair amount of mar­ket­ing spiel in the brand story of 18th cen­tury Bri­tish felons guilty of 19 crimes, sen­tenced to ex­ile, and un­wit­tingly turned colonists and pioneers. But to be fair, the wines are easy on the wal­let and quaf­fa­ble. For a cheap and cheery bar­be­cue tip­ple, try the 2016 Shi­raz with its jammy flavours laced with a hint of vanilla, or the easy-drink­ing 2015 red blend.

$24.90, avail­able at lead­ing su­per­mar­kets
