Hoddles Creek Estate was established in 1997 when the D'Anna family decided to establish a vineyard on the property that has been in the family since 1960. The vineyard sits astride Gembrook road and adjacent Hoddles Creek. Its steeply sloping blocks prohibit mechanical harvesting, with both vineyards being hand pruned and harvested. All wines are single vineyard and estate grown.

Located on the 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. Only the best barrels are choosen to make this cuvee.

Cool, spicy and citrus laden, ginger with a certain umami flavour, some porcini and chicken stock broth. Tight, spicy and saline, distinctly powdery and chalky, a ripcord of citrus acidity, Japanese ginger, and a brisk and tight finish of excellent length. Intense and uncompromising, and really good. I like it a lot. Tasted: Sept 2022; Alcohol: 12.7%; Price: $65; Closure: Screwcap; Drink: 2024-2030; Rated: 95+ Points; Gary Walsh; The Wine Front

Light straw-yellow hue with a pungent bouquet of low-level sulfides over grapefruit ; the wine is rich, ripe and fruit-sweet, with a lick of phenolics, all adding up to a broad and slightly grippy palate. The sulfides retreat after time in the glass. A big mouthful of gutsy chardonnay, generous and almost opulent, finishing with great length. Date Tasted: November 2022; Drink: 2022 to 2030; Price: $65.00; Alcohol: 12.8%; Rating: 95 Points; Huon Hooke; The Real Review
