Two outstanding wines

Following the success of the inaugural Foundation Fine Wine offer, we’ve secured another two outstanding limited batches of wine created and bottled exclusively for the Buderim Foundation by renowned vigneron and artisan winemaker David Franz Lehmann. Only this time, they are even better. Firstly, there’s a 2012 Eden Valley Shiraz and this time, there’s also a very special 2014 Adelaide Hills Chardonnay. Outstanding value at $30 per bottle.

Both wines were bottled and labelled for the Buderim Foundation in November, 2016.

Of the Shiraz, David says ‘This Eden Valley Red Gold comes from grapes dry grown by my good mate Mick Hearnden on his Eden Valley Road block. Just over a tonne of his fruit was night picked, before small batch open fermenting in two 510 parcels over 22 days. Each ferment was hand plunged three times daily before basket pressing to two second fill French oak hogsheads for 32 months’ maturation.’

And about the Chardonnay, ‘This is my tribute to what site, clone and winemaking can do when they all come together. The wine was hand crafted using a combination of old school and innovative techniques using Bernard 95 clone from Theo and Jan Moskos’ Birdwood block. The fruit was picked when structure and flavour were as near to perfect as possible. After basket pressing, the juice was barrel fermented unclarified with wild yeasts. It then spent 12 months in new and seasoned French oak hogsheads below 3°C with monthly topping and lees stirring before bottling.’
