Shiraz Riverina New South Wales
Redbox have claimed a multitude of medals and awards over a brief succession of impressive vintages, not bad for a recent starter. Pericoota is a gentle Shiraz wine offering complexity, harmony and supportive oak, drinking beautifully while young, with the capacity to age gracefully.
While still a developing winefrowing region, Perricoota is becoming known particularly for its premium quality Shiraz. Redbox has fashioned an immensely satisfying wine from parcels of the Perricoota cooperative's finest fruit, giving it the traditional open fermenter treatment followed by course of hand plunging under oak. Grapes sourced from vines at Mulyan Park at Perricoota on Murray were harvested in March and fermented in open vats for sixteen days before fifteen months maturation in a selection of new and seasoned French, Bulgarian and American oak barrels.

Deep red colour. Soft spicy aromas with overtones of blackberry and jam, a classic wine, which will delight the senses. A rich style on the palate abundant with fruits, spices and well balanced oak sweetness, delivering a full palate and a pleasant structure. Here's a sumptuous new-world Shiraz to savour with plainly sesoned but strogly flavoured slow roasted beef and lamb.
