Our Wines

Contraband is inspired by one of Australia’s first bootlegging wine entrepreneurs, Alice Clarke. Known as a “Sly–Grogger”, she illegally sold wines out of her bungalow before being arrested in 1916. In her honor, we bring you Contraband Wines. Our flagship vintage boasts intensely concentrated flavors that are bold and defiant, just like her. A wine Alice Clarke would be proud to service, legally or illegally.

    Our Cabernet Sauvignon is rich and juicy with an intense, velvety finish. Expressively balanced with powerful aromas, this Cabernet is fully concentrated and deliciously defiant. Notes of red cherry, black currant, and vanilla envelop the palate with every crimson-drenched sip.
