WINE PROFILE

Embracing the fastidious approach and innovative flair that Colin Preece extolled throughout his highly decorated career, the Mitchelton winemakers’ creatively explore Victoria’s rich and diverse viticultural landscape and some of the best patchwork of exciting sub regions in search of highly expressive sites and the finest quality. Handcrafting a collection of fruit-forward varieties, the contemporary Preece wines herald an exciting new era of wine and viticultural exploration from this iconic Victorian winery.

Tasting Note: Vibrant red in colour with a lively purple hue. The nose delivers lifted aromas of blackcurrant, plum and fresh bay leaf with cedary oak notes in support.The generous palate expands with flavours of dark fruit and cool mint, waxing and waning among complex notes of spicy oak. Ripe and round tannin deliver power and persistence to a finish full of flavour.
