Preece is a range of wines made by the Mitchelton winery in Central Victoria, which commemorates Mitchelton’s first winemaker Colin Preece. Preece keep it nice and easy: popular varietals, elegant wines and a fresh approach to ensure any one can enjoy Preece wines anywhere and at any time. All the grapes are sourced from cooler climate sites in Victoria with the expressed aim of making wines that retain a natural elegance and purity of flavour.

Production note

The temperature was controlled at between 22-28°C, with regular pumping over to ensure full extraction of colour and flavour from the skins. A significant portion of this wine was matured in oak barrels (15% new French, 85% 2-5 year old French and American) for 13 months to impart mocha, vanilla and spice flavours and soften the wine. Some parcels remained in tank after fermentation to retain pure fruit characters. These batched were then combined with the oak components to create the final blend.
