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.
- VIC - Geelong
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 Tasting Notes
A complex array of savoury, forestry aromas and flavours. Spicy notes and red fruits on the nose. A silky mid-palate. Savoury, good length and finish.
Will age gracefully for at least eight years under ideal storage conditions.
