Preece can be proud of a history spanning several decades and representing many of Victoria's most memorable vintage releases. The salubrious fruit growing terroirs of Goullburn are an idyll for the noble Chardonnay grape. Old and new world vinification techniques serve to place the quality of fruit right upfront, as framed by a judicious use of oak and supported by luxurious lees complexity. A generous Chardonnay wine delivering a punch of nectarine, rockmelon and vanilla flavours, offering good structure and lovely creamy textures.
Grapes are sourced from the estate vineyard at Mitchelton and neighboring sites in Goulburn Valley, choice parcels which can enhance the wine's lovely backbone of full, rich stonefruit flavours. Further complemented by the tangy citrus notes and refreshing natural acidity of choice parcels grown to good vineyards around Nagambie Lakes. Gentle handling of fruit during crushing and and the press are essential to minimize phenolics, cool fermentations are emplyed to retain freshness and vitality. Components are matured several months on sedimentary yeast lees in a selection of seasoned and new French oak barriques to infuse the wine with complexity and build structure.
TASTING NOTES
Pale straw hue. Fresh mango and melon nose over hints of nougat and delicately spiced oak. Lush palate full of peach and melon flavours, underscored by a refreshing citrus acidity and balanced oak. A refined finish on a length of juicy fruit characters and restrained oak. Match with crispy skin roast chicken and kipflers in herb jus.

More 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»
