Dominio de Pingus

About Dominio de Pingus

Dominio de Pingus is located in the La Horra region of Ribera del Duero in Spain.  The owner/winemaker is one of the most celebrated names in world wine.  Peter Sisseck, an oenologist originally from Denmark, started the estate way back in 1995 and has grown to be one of the globe’s very top wines. 

 

Viniculture

There are currently 3 wines produced by the estate:  Flor de Pingus, a single barrel cuvée called Amelia (which began in 2003), and the flagship Pingus. In a normal vintage, there are usually about 4,000 cases of Flor de Pingus, 500 cases of Pingus and just 25 cases of Amelia.  The vines are all over 35 years of age and have been farmed biodynamically since 2005.

 

The first vintage of Pingus was in 1995. The vines producing this fantastic wine are all at least 65 years of age and yields are typically under 1 ton per acre. The wine is 100% Tempranillo and is bottled without fining or filtration.

Pingus Flor de Pingus Ribera del Duero 2016 (3x150cl)

Wine Advocate (95)

I also tasted the unbottled 2016 Flor de Pingus before, so a revisit now, some 15 months after it was bottled, was due. There is great freshness in these 2016s, with a character that reminded me of orange peel, citrus and floral. There is great balance in the palate, and the tannins are velvety within the faintly rustic character of the zone; keeping the style of the zone, that texture is what Peter Sisseck calls three-dimensional tannins—very clean and focused, long and tasty and ending with great freshness. They were able to harvest early with proper ripeness and tons of freshness; in fact, that year they finished harvesting when some had not even started in the zone... In the future, they will include some Garnacha in the blend of Flor de Pingus (starting with 2018 with a very small percentage), as they have planted some vines selected from old vineyards in the region. They now have 35 hectares from four parajes in the village of La Horra for this wine, and in 2016, they produced 105,000 bottles. It was bottled in June 2018.
