This single estate Bacchus is the second vintage to come from the vineyard since its revitalisation at the hands of new owners, Craig Mills and Charlotte Davitt-Mills. It displays fantastic typicity: floral notes of elderflower on the nose, and crisp acidity on the palate with distinct gooseberry and lime flavours. This wine pairs beautifully with chicken or seafood.
The vines at Shotley Vineyard were planted in phases since the 1990s, with the Bacchus vines, of which there are over 3,000, planted in 1997, 1998 and 2003. Having fallen into abandonment, Craig and Charlotte took over the vineyard in 2017, and embarked on the laborious process of restoring it. The vineyard is beautifully situated overlooking both the Orwell and Stour estuaries, against the backdrop of the Suffolk Coast & Heaths and in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
