2014 Curlewis Bel Sel Pinot Noir

Winemaker's Notes

Named after Septimus Lord Curlewis, its first settler in 1840, Curlewis is a small wine growing district on the Bellarine Peninsula near Geelong, one hour's drive south-west of Melbourne, Australia.

At Curlewis we endeavour to create highly concentrated, complex, food friendly wines. We try to learn from the thousand years of European experience with wine and food as a combination, not in isolation as is all too common in the New World.

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.

Clear colour; shows the experience of winemaker Rainer Breit; an unambiguously good pinot at this price, with a complex array of flavours within a silky mid-palate and a textural, light tannin finish.

Very funky savoury, earthy, briary style; firm finish; likely to polarise opinions.

Complex forest floor, and a hint of game; there could possibly be some issues with brett; while the palate is long, it has a slightly hard finish.

James Halliday (2004 Vintage) says
Light colour showing obvious development; the wine follows on with savoury/foresty aromas and flavours; does have length.
