Preece Shiraz CONFIRM VINTAGE

Shiraz Victoria
Melbourne entrepreneur Ross Shelmerdine commissioned industry maestro Colin Preece in 1967 to find the best Victorian sites for making great wine. Preece chose an old grazing property in the Nagambie district of central Victoria for its climate, soil and proximity to waterways. Preece Shiraz is still vinified at the renowned Mitchelton wineworks, sourcing the best fruit from a diversity of vineyards to create a rich complex wine with expressions of spiced plum and juicy blackberries, supported by fine tannins and a measure of elegant vanilla oak.
Available by the dozen
Case of 12
$227.00
Grapes are sourced from select sites within central Victoria including the Mitchelton estate vineyard which provides the foundation for the wine's profound varietal expression. Close attention to canopy and yield management on an individual site basis ensure the fruit achieves full flavour expression. Ferments are temperature controlled and treated to regular pumpovers for full colour and flavour extraction from skins. The finished wine is matured in a combination of seasoned French and American oak barrels, to impart mellow chocolate, vanilla and spice characters while softening the tannins.
