Overview

In addition to the estate-grown grapes, Curlewis purchases Pinot Noir grapes from several other growers in the Geelong region, on both the Bellarine Peninsula and the Bannockburn region. The different microclimates of these two sub-regions allow for different flavour characteristics, which when combined 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.

Expert Reviews

Light red-purple; the bouquet and palate are light, but have some complexity from interwoven exotic spices, red fruits and savoury, albeit light, tannins. Rating 89 - Drink by 2014 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (FEB/2013)

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

We absorb the wine-making styles of Burgundy and Rhone in particular, but set out to take advantage of our more consistent climate and some of the better new techniques to create wines of greater concentration and flavour ripeness yet still with the full length of palate that goes with ultra premium wines the world over.Success for us is a Grand Cru Burgundy drinker who buys our wine because in her opinion it almost reaches that quality at a tenth of the price.

The winery was established in1998 by Rainer Breit & Wendy Oliver with the first vintage produced that year. Owner’s Stefano Marasco & Leesa Freyer say “the combination of the old vines, deep rich soil and the amazing palate of winemaker Rainer Breit, creates the unique and superior Pinot Noir wine of Curlewis.
