"Syberia is quite a unique site. First planted in 2006, a ten acre block entirely to Chardonnay. It has a 5 different clones in the block which were picked out from source blocks on our existing property. It is different to all the other blocks as the rows for this block run East-West rather than North-South. So instead of having morning and afternoon sun hitting the bunch zone, the sun is always overhead of the canopy. This leads to less direct sunlight on the bunches and enables us to pick the fruit at lower sugar levels with the same amount of ripeness. I won't bore you with the all the winemaking details as it is pretty straight forward. The fruit is picked early in the morning, whole bunch pressed to tank. It's left to settle over night in tank and decanted into barrel. It's left in barrel until November, where it is assembled and bottled. It spends almost two years in bottle before it released." - Winemaker Notes 

"Tight, linear, pure and full of all manner of citrus flavours from lemon zest, juice and pith with beautiful texture, almost a zinc-like quality, saline and mouth-watering. Superfine acidity all the way through, and it lingers long." - 96 Points, Jane Faulkner, Halliday Wine Companion
