Preece can be proud of a long and proud heritage, crafting fully approachable cool climate white wines of great elegance and style. Fruit is sourced from choice vineyards, many are in the higher altitudes of the Victorian highlands, cool ripening climes which bring out the best in Sauvignon Blanc. Harvests are selected on the basis of exemplary primary fruit characters, ranging from fragrant grass and herbaceousness, asparagus and capsicum flavours to luscious tropical characters, passionfruit, guava and lychee.
Sauvignon Blanc has meant Preece to consumers for many years, one of Australia's most popular varietal white table wines. Regular sampling and close monitoring of flavour development is conducted by the Mitchelton winemaking team around the individual vineyards, to achieve an excellent spectrum of flavours. The approach to constructing wine is all about protecting the vivacious qualities of the vineyard and fruit. Gentle pressing to avoid any bitterness from the skins and minimal exposure to oxygen through the whole process, ensures the retention of delicate fruit aromas and flavours. Temperature controlled ferments through the action of specialized yeasts enhance the aromaticness of fine Sauvignon Blanc.
TASTING NOTES
Light straw hue with green highlights. Vibrant passionfruit and mango nose, fruit blossom perfumes and fresh cut herbs. A palate of lively citrus, passionfruit and mango undertones, generous flavours of juicy mandarin and fleshy tropical fruits are highlighted by fine minerality and a refreshingly citrus crisp finish. Preece matches beautifully with goats cheese and leek tart.

About Preece Winery
For almost two decades the renowned Mitchelton winery has been producing the immensely popular Preece range of wines
In 1967 Melbourne entrepreneur Ross Shelmerdine commisioned wine industry stalwart Colin Pearce to find the best site for premium grape growing anywhere in south eastern Australia. Preece chose an old grazing estate, prized for it's climate, soil and proximity to the waterways. Colin Preece, one of the great winemakers of the 20th century, and for decades chief winemaker at Seppelt Great Western, came out of a ten-year retirement to help found Mitchelton in 1973. Preece»
