In addition to the estate-grown Chardonnay grapes, Curlewis purchases Chardonnay grapes from other growers in the Geelong region. When combined these add to the complexity of the Bellarine Selection or “Bel Sel” wines and incorporate the flavour characteristics of the Curlewis range, but with less oak treatment.
- VIC - Geelong
Mid-gold; a savoury wine, with lemongrass, lemon pith, anise and ginger; the palate is rich on entry, with enough acidity and a salty tang to provide freshness on the finish.

Winery Tasting Notes
Bright straw, yellow and green.
Aromas of nectarine and tangy grapefruit with some barrel ferment notes on the bouquet.
Flavours and textures of white peach, nectarine and hazelnut with perfectly integrated oak. A well balanced, flavoursome palate that glides across the tongue.
Drinking beautifully now and up to 2017.
