About
This is flat out sensational chardonnay.

About The Wine

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 Chardonnay which will easily take the next decade in stride. 

About Hoddles Creek Estate

Hoddles Creek lay a serious claim to being one of the best value producers in Australia. Led by the extremely hardworking winemaking guru Franco D’Anna, Hoddles craft wonderful Chardonnay and Pinot Noir in particular that seriously overdeliver at all price-points.

The wines are all crafted from fruit grown on their family owned vineyard in the Upper Yarra Valley. A must try for Yarra Valley fans and bargain hunters alike!

About Yarra Valley Chardonnay

The Yarra Valley could perhaps be described as the home of the ‘new school’ style of Australian Chardonnay. The Yarra is riddled - from the Valley floor to the highest points of the Upper Yarra - with excellent vineyards which are producing decidedly world class Chardonnay. These wines are cool, elegant, yet immensely powerful.

Some of the world’s most noteworthy critics are going so far as to compare them with the best of Burgundy. If you look for tension and focus in your Chardonnay, the Yarra Valley is going to be a very happy hunting ground for you.

The Wine Front

"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)

Additional Info

From The Producer

Located on our steepest, highest block at Hoddles Creek. Syberia is always quite different to the standard Hoddles Creek Chardonnay. The row orientation is East-West so it doesn't see a lot of direct sunlight on bunches. The wine is whole bunch pressed straight to cask, no fining and zero filtration. From the day the vines were planted, Syberia has always been a special block. We choose only the best barrels for to make this cuvee.

Blend : Chardonnay (100%)
