About

Syberia is the nickname the D'Anna family has given to the highest and steepest block of Chardonnay on the Hoddles Creek Estate vineyard. The wine it produces each year is markedly different to the rest of the Hoddles Creek Chardonnays. Syberia is leaner, more focused and perhaps a more precise 'Chablis-eque' style of wine. It is compact yet powerful, hence Franco allowing it extra time in bottle prior to release. The 2015 is a sensational vintage of this wine. A wine which will take the next decade easily in stride. As Gary Walsh said, unequivocally, in his 96 point review, "This is flat out sensational chardonnay."

What it Tastes Like

"This is flat out sensational chardonnay. So cool. So pure. So seamless. It’s gentle and subdued, saline and nutty, with a milky texture, white peach, white flowers and a wisp of struck match, perhaps some cut fennel perfume too. Fresh and precise on an energetic finish of superb length. All just so. Straight to the pool room." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)
