More about

As of 2011/2012 Junge Löwen is a youthful fruity 100% Blaufränkisch. 2007 and 2008 were a blend of Blaufränkisch, Zweigelt and Cabernet Sauvignon.

Junge Löwen is at the same time powerful, spicy and with plenty of fruit.

It's Heidi's most popular red wine in the Austrian market. It's very versatile. It works both as an everyday red for casual drinking and also as a more serious wine to accompany food.

It is also a wine that takes chilling well, as do some Beaujolais, making it a great summer wine. This is probably the best way to enjoy it.

Ben says about the 2008 (April 2017): What a clever wine! The blend of the three grapes gives a delicacy in the colour, the nose and the flavour. This is a wine drinkers wine which is great on its own but with a style that allows pairing with many foods.

Tasting Notes

Vintage 2012

Appearance: medium ruby
Nose: Developing medium plus intensity aromas of Fresh damsons, red and black cherries and some lovely mineral notes reminiscent of the pink granite of some of the Beaujolais Cru.
Palate: Dry, high acidity, medium plus silky tannins, medium plus body, high alcohol and long finish
Pronounced intensity aromas of fresh black cherries and blackberries with some cinnamon spice and clove. A hint of white pepper and some cedarwood. Some developed notes of dried blackberries also evident.
Great balance, length and complexity. An excellent wine drinking well now and with the potential for further ageing!
