Description

Late in the 19th century, roaming cattle were often found grazing on the grass of the granite hills which are now home to Nannup Estate. Farmers recognised the quality of the land and the location was one of the first to be taken up for agriculture in the region. Mark and Alison Blizard purchased the land in 1998, and recognised it had the perfect attributes to grow quality wine grapes.

During the growing season, the Nannup Ridge vines enjoy long hours of sunshine followed by cool evenings and moderate coastal breezes in the afternoon, resulting in idyllic growing conditions. Abundant water, granite loam soils and low frost and disease pressure all contribute to reliable quality and consistent vintages.

The Wines

Nannup Estate makes two wine ranges; Rolling Hills and Firetower.

The Rolling Hills range utilises the reliable temperature, climate and ancient granite soils of the region to produce high-quality fruit with distinct varietal characters, and includes a Merlot, Tempranillo, Malbec, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay.

The Firetower range takes its name from a Jarrah Firetower overlooking Nannup Estate that was built in the 1960s. The expansive view over the renowned Nannup Hills, the coastal plain and Blackwood River Valley made the tower ideal for spotting emerging bushfires. Within this range is a Cabernet Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc, Shiraz Malbec Tempranillo and Tempranillo Rose.
