Dominio Pingus Flor de Pingus Ribera del Duero 2006
Flor de Pingus from 2006 is deep purple in color with a fantastic bouquet of toasty oak, spice box, mineral, incense, black cherry and blackberry. Youthful, full-bodied, intense and powerful on the palate, it retains an elegant personality despite its size. Magnificently balanced, it will develop for 4-6 years and deliver prime drinks from 2013 to 2026. Dominio de Pingus is located in the La Horra region of Ribera del Duero. Owner / wine producer, Peter Sisseck, an oenologist originally from Denmark, started the property in 1995. 3 wines are currently being produced, Flor de Pingus, a single barrel of cuvé called Amelia, which started in 2003, and the flagship Pingus. In a normal vintage, there are usually about 4000 cases of Flor de Pingus, 500 cases of Pingus and 25 cases of Amelia. Flor de Pingus comes from a number of small packages in the La Horra zone. Vines are all over 35 years old and have been bred biodynamically since 2005. They are owned or rented by Peter Sisseck, so Flor de Pingus always comes from the same plots of land. In that sense, it is not another wine, but there is no question that there is a very close approximation of Pingus to a fraction of the price. That makes it a relatively good buy in things. The wine is 100% Tempranillo, typically aged for 14 months in new French barricades. The first vintage of Pingus was in 1995. The farm has been biodynamically farmed since 2000 and, according to Sisseck, has never been treated with fertilizers or pesticides. Pingus vines are all at least 65 years old and the yield is typically less than 1 ton per. Acre. Wines made from 100% Tempranillo are bottled without refining or filtering.
