Description

Sitting high on the granite ridges of the Blackwood River Escarpment and set inland from the Margaret River Township, Nannup Ridge Estate is host to 31 hectares of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Shiraz.

The first vines were planted in 1998, with subsequent plantings taking place in 2000 and 2006. During the growing season, the vines are perfectly situated so they enjoy long hours of sunshine during the day and coastal breezes and cool evenings in the afternoon. Additionally, abundant water, granite loam soils and low frost and disease pressure all contribute to reliable quality and consistent vintages. 

The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon won Best in Show and Gold at the 2018 Timber Towns Wine Show. This Cabernet is highly perfumed with a leafy black fruit combination on the nose. It can be enjoyed now, however, medium term cellaring will enrich is complexity. 

Nannup Ridge Estate's 2016 Shiraz won Silver at the Timber Towns Regional Wine Show 2018. This generous and soft Shiraz displays a good depth of fruit. Cloves and plums are the notes on the nose, with a little sprinkle of spice. The palate holds a dry earthiness with the chalky tannins creating a gravelly loamy character.

Winner of Silver at the Royal Hobart Wine Show 2013 and Silver at the Qantas WA Wine Show, the 2012 Merlot is a rich wine abound in aromas of red currant, macerated plums and hints of violets.

The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon won Silver at the Australian Cool Climate Wine Show, Sydney Royal Wine Show and the Royal Adelaide Wine Show. This wine displays the bright fruit aromas of dark cherries and mulberries. It holds a palate laden with dark tones of leather, cassis and cedar. The finish boasts a succulent balance of fruit acidity and purity. Bringing the wine to an elegant and persistent close is the ripe velvety tannins.

The vineyard and winemaking enterprise only occupy 1% of the family's mixed farming property (which also includes sheep, harvest crops and blue gum plantation).

The Wines

The Shedley philosophy involves a hands-on approach to grape growing, winemaking and marketing. All vines are hand-pruned, grapes are handpicked, and wines are handmade using open fermentation, basket pressing and minimal fining or filtering. The vineyard is 3 hectares with roughly equal areas of Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz. All plantings have trickle irrigation in place to prevent stress on the vines, which maximises the intensity of flavours and results in consistent, full-bodied wines.

The wine range includes a Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Cabernet Shiraz, Franc & Ruby Port, and Sauvignon Blanc.

Cellar Door

Shedley Wines can be visited by appointment only. Those who visit are encouraged  to get involved in the grape growing and winemaking process, assisting with pruning, picking, crushing pressing and bottling wines. Chris Shedley teaches the practices of bottling, and visitors are rewarded for their efforts with wines for purchase at a heavily reduced price.

Unique Highlights

The Shedley farm has several sizeable areas of native bush which are easily accessible on foot. Notably, the sheep pastures, Eucalypt plantings and nearby Blackwood River provide scenic walking opportunities. Chris is also the great, great grandson of John Jacob who planted Jacobs Creek in the Barossa Valley, and a range of memorabilia is on display at the Shedley Cellar Door.
