The Cortijo III Tinto is a blend of 80% Tempranillo and 20% Garnacha fermented and aged in stainless steel. It shows off a terrific aromatic array of cherry, black raspberry, and earth notes leading to a surprisingly rich, full-flavored wine with plenty of savory fruit and a lengthy, pure finish. It is an exceptional value.
|A new wine estate with wines from top Saar vineyard sites
VOLS, a small winery with old family-owned vineyards on the best southern facing slopes has been launched in Ayl and Wiltingen, the best wine villages on the Saar river.
For several years, the committed wine maker Helmut Plunien has experimented in these vineyards in order to produce best wines from mostly ungrafted vines. The extremely fruity and concentrated wines from the Saar river, that have been served and enjoyed all over the world for centuries, are sold in the traditionally dark and slender bottles.
VOLS’ philosophy of wine making is simple: the world’s best wines can be produced only from the best fruit from best vineyard sites and with utter dedication. The low per hectare yields of old vineyards result in highly concentrated musts. A fermentation that relies on natural yeasts together with a careful vinification guarantee unique and long-lasting wines.
