About Austria – Junge Lowen, Heidi Schrock Burgenland
The fruit for the Junge Löwen was sourced from the `Ruster` vineyard, which lies on the top of the Rust Hill surrounding Lake Neusiedl, facing eastwards. The soil is sandy loam with mica schist and gneiss. The vines are trained in the Guyot simple method. Viticulture is done sustainably, without the use of herbicides or insecticides and the growth of local plants as cover crop is encouraged.
‘Junge Löwen’ is ruby red in colour, with aromas of raspberries, violets and beautiful minerality resembling the schisty soils where the fruit is grown.
