Pinot Gris Grigio Victoria
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 Pinot Grigio. Harvests are selected on the basis of exemplary primary fruit characters, ranging from fragrant hazelnut and lychee, to luscious tropical characters, passionfruit, guava and tea tree.
Pinot Grigio has been one of Preece highest priorities for many years. Regular sampling and close monitoring of flavour development, as the fruit ripens on the vines, is essential to making good wine. A gentle pressing of grapes to avoid any bitterness from the skins and minimal exposure to oxygen throughout the entire process, ensures the retention of natural varietal characters and flavours. Temperature controlled ferments through the action of specialized yeasts enhance the aromaticness of a truly splendid Pinot Grigio.
