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: Deep red in colour with a distinct purple hue, the nose offers aromas of blackberry and plum with dark chocolate and is supported by spicy vanilla notes.The full palate and mouth fill greets the taster with layers of plum, blueberry and spice. Well balanced oak and rounded tannin build on the long and flavoursome finish.
