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 color is quite light (relatively speaking), bright and lively, the nose perfumed, floral and elegant, like no PSI before. The palate is medium-bodied, with fine tannins, and it feels terribly balanced and beautifully textured. It's elegant more than powerful but full of energy. This is without a doubt the finest PSI to date.View more
