What is Shotley Pinot Noir?
Shotley is one of Suffolk’s oldest vineyards, first planted in the 1990s, but today is owned and run by Charlotte Davitt-Mills. She is a brilliant young viticulturalist who gave up working as an insurance broker in Mumbai for a life in the vines. She makes just a few thousand bottles a year of this delicious fragrant, delicate, and juicy English Pinot Noir.
What’s so great about it?
Shotley Vineyard’s Pinot is light and delicate enough to be enjoyed by people who usually prefer white wines, but doesn’t scrimp on the fruit, with deliciously ripe, pure, cherry and strawberry character, with silky texture and a juicy finish. It is also fantastic served lightly chilled.
If this isn’t reason enough why you should drink Shotley Pinot Noir…
If you buy it on Marasby Market direct from the winemaker at vineyard gate pricing, it’ll cost you just £19 per bottle.
Want to try before you buy? Taste Shotley Pinot Noir at the Marasby Intro to English Wine – a series of regular tastings at Tap & Bottle in London Bridge, where you can taste six amazing wines that tell you everything you need to know about English wine, accompanied by platters of British cheese and charcuterie.
Tickets for the Intro are available now via Design my Night.
What should you drink it with?
We’d drink Shotley Pinot Noir lightly chilled as a deliciously refreshing aperitif and serve with a plate of British charcuterie. There’s been a boom in the local scene and animal welfare standards are often much higher in the UK.
