Characteristics of Pingus

Dominio de Pingus is a small vineyard in the D.O. Ribera del Duero run by the Danish agricultural engineer and oenologist Peter Sisseck. They follow traditional production methods, have very low production, and focus on making all their wines the highest quality. The result of this is Pingus, today one of the most sought-after and well-known wines in the world. 

The grapes come from selected old Tinta de Toro vines between 50 and 70 years old. The vineyards are small with very scarce production, encompassing only 5 hectares in the towns of Pesquera and Roa. 
The grapes are collected manually and they only select the grapes that are at their optimum ripeness, which gives the wine a very special character, very fruity and concentrated. 

Pingus ferments completely naturally, thus maintaining the aroma and flavor of the grapes before then being put in barrels for malolactic fermentation. The barrels come from Darnajou cooperage in Bordeaux, known as the best cooperage in the world. Two new barrels are used to make Pingus. The first new barrel is used for the malolactic fermentation and the second new barrel is for its ageing. 

Pingus has now become an object of desire, one of the most sought-after wines in the world. Its first vintage earned 98 Parker points, but it wasn't until a few years later with the 2004 vintage that it became one of the first five Spanish wines to get the highest acknowledgement: 100 Parker points.
Alcohol: 15.5%
Serve at 16ºC
