How to serve
Pingus is a very new and hugely successful winery in Ribera del Duero. Run by a young, Danish born renowned winemaker, Peter Sisseck, the winery has produced astonishing results (and prices) in a very short period of time. Located in a winery said by John Radford, Spanish wine expert, to resemble a pink flying saucer, Pingus is part of an elite club of top Spanish wine producers. Yields are incredibly low, the wines are extremely concentrated, allocation is miniscule. Crianza and Reserva wines are made from ancient, gnarled Tempranillo vines. Sisseck is said to be a genius in the vineyard, where pruning has become an artform.More about the Winery
The 2010 Flor de Pingus is raised in 40% to 50% new French oak (Darnajou and Taransaud). It has a superb bouquet that is taut at first, but unfolds beautifully with very pure small dark cherries, cassis, orange blossom and a faint, attractive note of strawberry cheesecake. The palate is medium-bodied with sumptuous, plush tannins counterbalanced by the crisp thread of acidity. It has great clarity and tension with vibrant allspice and white pepper notes towards the finish that closes down a little, suggesting that it will need two or three years in bottle. Excellent. Drink 2015-2025. Available from The Rare Wine Company: $90 per bottle.View more
