Preece are premium Victorian wines with a long and proud heritage, fully approachable cool climate white wines with elegance. Sauvignon Blanc was sourced from mature vineyards in the King Valley, Strathbogie Ranges, Alpine and Yarra Valleys. 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 fruit and vineyard. 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 fermentation at 10° to 14° in tank with select strains of yeast. Approx 13.0%. Colour is a pale straw with flecks of green. Intense aromas of tropical fruit with slight hints of spearmint, lighter characters of asparagus, capsicum and grapefruit. Palate full of lively citrus, passionfruit and mango undertones, exciting complexity as the wine develops round the tongue, it's grapefruit and spicey with minerality and good texture. A refreshing and lingering finish, Preece matches beautifully with goats cheese and leek tart.
