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: Dark red in colour with deep purple hues. The nose delivers rich and ripe blackcurrant and blackberry aromas, supported by cedar oak notes and subtle bay leaf spice. Underpinning the palate is bright and youthful blackberry fruit and traces of cassis and mulberry along cedar oak spice. Fine grained oak and fruit tannins provide structure and supports the wine while a core intense fruit flavours lead seamlessly to a persistent finish.
