Moorooroo endures as the nation's cardinal parcel of vine, the mother rootstock for many of the Barossa's most distinguished sites. For over a century, these sacred vines contributed fruit to the Orlando company, where they formed the backbone of countless spectacular historical vintages.

In 1967 Melbourne entrepreneur Ross Shelmerdine commisioned wine industry stalwart Colin Pearce to find the best site for grape vines. Preece chose an old grazing property, prized for its climate, soil and proximity to the waterways. The estate was named Mitchelton and is home to the immensely popular Preece range of wines. Cabernet Sauvignon is selected from the best vineyards around the Goulburn Valley and central Victoria. Temperature controlled fermentations and regular pumpovers ensure full colour and flavour extraction from skins. The final wine is treated to a measure of maturation in a mix of seasoned French and American oak barrels for a year.

Bouquets of blackberry evolve as the wine breathes, subtle aged oak characters mate beautifully with the Cabernet fruit. Luscious plums and dark chocolate combine with tomato leaf and spice before a long, flavoursome finish over textured, even tannins.
