Terrific line and length. A very fine wine and very impressive value for money - Huon Hooke

The Wise property is in one of Margaret River's most iconic settings, overlooking the vines, the pristine natural bushland of Meelup Regional Park and the blue waters of Geographe Bay. The Leaf Series Chardonnay is sourced from select parcels of premium Chardonnay from partner growers in Wilyabrup and is aged in both new and used French oak barriques for a period of 12 months. Like all the wines in the flagship 'Leaf Series' range, it offers outstanding value for money.

"A bright, fresh, bell-clear aroma of grapefruit and lemon, lifted by a suggestion of peppermint, and the palate is likewise bright, crisp and intense, with a line of precision acidity streaking through it. Terrific line and length. A very fine wine and very impressive value for money."  Huon Hooke

Expert reviews

"Bright, light to mid-yellow colour with a bright, fresh, bell-clear aroma of grapefruit and lemon, lifted by a suggestion of peppermint, and the palate is likewise bright, crisp and intense, with a line of precision acidity streaking through it. Terrific line and length. A very fine wine and very impressive value for money. Drink: 2019-2027."  Huon Hooke, The Real Review - 95 points

"A strange juxtaposition of prices between this and its Eagle Bay sibling. This is a nice Margaret River chardonnay, with abundant, textured, ripe fruits, the only question being a slightly reductive bouquet."  James Halliday, Halliday Wine Companion - 94 points and Special Value Wine

About the winery

Wise Vineyard

Wise winery was established in 1992, when Biochemist Dr Ron Wise and his wife Sandra bought the then Geographe Bay Estate. The vineyard adjacent to winery comprises 2ha of cabernet sauvignon and shiraz, and 0.5ha of zinfandel. 

The Margaret River Estate grapes are supplemented by contract-grown grapes from Margaret River, Pemberton, Manjimup and Frankland River. The wines offer extraordinary value for money.

Highly awarded winemaking consultant Larry Cherubino has been engaged since the late 2000s to direct viticultural, fruit sourcing and winemaking activities. Larry’s influence has been to drive the quality of the Wise wines to a level among the highest in the Margaret River region. Wise Winery has been awarded numerous gold medals at the major Australian wine shows. Noted wine critic James Halliday has rated Wise Wine as a 5 Star Winery, a testament to the quality and consistency of their wine-making.

The Wise property is home to one of Margaret River’s most renowned restaurants, the only one to overlook both the vines and the ocean. It is a truly iconic setting, surrounded by vineyard and the pristine natural bushland of Meelup Regional Park and looking out to the sublime blue waters of Geographe Bay.

Western Australia

Western Australia is home to more than 400 wineries across nine vast and extraordinary wine regions which are almost entirely concentrated in the south-west and great southern land divisions of the State. The regions are Blackwood Valley, Geographe, Great Southern, Peel, Pemberton, Manjimup, Margaret River and Swan District.

The oldest region is the Swan Valley, the best known both nationally and internationally is Margaret River and the largest is Great Southern. The Great Southern region is further divided into the five subregions of Albany, Denmark, Frankland River, Mount Barker and Porongurup.

The history of wine production in Western Australia dates back to 1840 with the establishment of Sandalford in the Swan Valley region. The recognition of the fine wine possibilities started to be realised after the establishment of the Margaret River Region in 1967, which has become renowned for its high quality Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon. The other regions produce a diverse range of regionally distinct wines, from stunning Rieslings and evocative Shiraz, to a range of unique Cabernet Sauvignon blends.
