SYBERIA Chardonnay 2015
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.

To be released in a month or so, I believe.
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.
