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.

Tasting notes Pingus

The 2017 vintage has been characterized as being hot and dry. Low water reserves at the start became more severe during the months of July and August, when conditions were extremely dry except for some heavy rains towards the beginning of the harvest. But without a doubt the defining moment of the year was the frost that affected much of Ribera del Duero on April 28 immediately following budding, resulting in weak plant mass. This affected plant growth and flowering for the entire year resulting in production losses between 70 and 80%. This devastation was followed by some very hot months in June and July. Because of these issues, the grapes of this vintage have been smaller in size. Peter Sisseck described it as, “an early harvest characterized by ripe aromas, great extract and low acidity.” Due to the heavy frost that occurred in Ribera de Duero, they’ve had to seek out new areas in the DO, such as Burgos and Soria, for the production of PSI.
After a dry winter, spring came loaded with rain. Thankfully, this water was stored, since it was much needed during the extremely dry summer. The low temperatures during spring delayed the sprouting of the vines, which led the growth cycle to start with delay. However, this delay was offset thanks to the high temperatures recorded in July and August, to the point of delaying ripening in those younger vineyards. The 2016 vintage beat the production record of the 2014 vintage. And not only in production, but also in quality due to the excellent weather conditions and the excellent health of the vineyards. The wines from this vintage offer a lot of volume, with a good capacity to face the passing of time, with roundness and spectacular tannins. A harvest reminiscent of those of the late 80s and early 90s.
The 2015 vintage started with a winter that had good groundwater reserves. The spring was warm and dry until well into the month of June, when there were intense rainfall at the beginning of the blooming. A summer with some well spread out storms gave way to a very dry autumn. The harvest was slightly ahead of the usual dates, but the analytical and organoleptic features, and the balance of the berries, were ideal. Thus enabled the harvest to take place at the optimal ripening time. The wines from this vintage, which was classified as excellent, have a good colour intensity, significant fruity notes on the nose and a high tannic potential in the mouth, with sweet tannins that indicate the good phenolic ripening of the berries. A vintage reminiscent of the exceptional 2005 vintage.
After the withering in a mild winter, the warm start of spring brought sprouting forward by almost 10 days. The summer, which was quite cool and dry, enabled the good evolution of the growth cycle and a balanced ripening. This was a vintage without setbacks. Worth mentioning is the high production of this vintage due to good climatic behaviour during the harvest. The wines from this vintage have great colour intensity, and a high fruity expression on the nose and in the mouth. Their balance and tannic potential stand out; these features show us the great potential to produce great wines for ageing, and for lighter and fruitier productions.
This was a complicated year. Although the sprouting of the vines was slightly early, the low temperatures recorded during the spring delayed the growth cycle, which no longer recovered in the summer, despite having a warm month of July. The harvest was carried out at a fast pace, and with the extra effort of the viticulturers, who discarded the fruit that did not meet the optimal conditions. This way, they made sure that they avoided the probable effect of the botrytis attacks due to the rains they had around this time. The wines from this vintage, rated as a good one, offer good colour intensity, great fruit expression and a lot of freshness.
Regarding climate, the 2012 vintage started with the sprouting of the vines in the beginning of spring with the cooler temperatures. In May, generous rainfall and high temperatures gave way to a generalised drought throughout the summer. Luckily, the rains started at the onset of the ripening. The precipitations at the beginning of October, and the nice temperatures during the harvest, resulted in the a uniform phenolic ripening. The wines from this vintage have a good alcoholic strength, balanced by moderate levels of acidity, with a good colour and phenolic intensity, and a suitable level of tannins, all important features for a perfect ageing.
After a predictable winter, the weather changed in spring. Temperatures were higher than normal, which caused an early start of the grapes’ ripening cycle. The normal course of the climate at the end of spring and at the beginning of the summer, allowed the vines to recover their usual pace, and the veraison took place on the expected dates. The beginning of the harvest was slightly early due to the strong heat the grapes suffered during their ripening. However, the nice weather throughout the harvest, without rain or frost, provided grapes with an impeccable health. Wines from the 2011 vintage have a slightly higher alcohol strength than usual, with a perfect balance thanks to their natural acidity, concentration of colour and phenolic richness. For all these reasons, this vintage has been classified as excellent, offering high-quality young wines, and wines with the ideal features for their ageing.
The 2009 vintage started with a winter of low temperatures, which gave way to a cool spring. A dry summer, with warm days and mild nights, and great temperature changes between day and night, led to very balanced, complex and concentrated grapes. As for climate, it was the perfect vintage. This influenced the health of the grapes, which was excellent. Therefore, the wines from this vintage have a good acidity, which is responsible for long-lived wines with a good structure. And generally, responsible for very fruity wines with fresh red fruit that stands out. One of the great vintages of this region.
Sight Pretty picota red colour. High robe. Nose Intense. Black fruit, plums and nuances of red fruit. Taste Very tasty. High concentration of fruit. Spicy notes with a mineral aftertaste. Very noticeable but high-quality tannins.
Sight Intense maroon-cherry red colour. Nose High aromatic intensity, with very ripe red fruit and very marked toasted hints. Taste In the mouth, it is structured, powerful and silky. Great acidity and plenty of fruit.
Sight Dark ruby red colour with dense tear. Nose Very concentrated aromas. Blackberries, plums, spiced notes and tobacco. Taste Soft attack with presence of the fruit which is perceived in the nose. Concentrated wine with a long finish.

Dominio de Pingus is Peter Sisseck, and Peter Sisseck is Pingus, a red wine that is worship object, and one of the most sought, desired, envied and coveted wines of the planet. This is his personal project, which began with an extension of vineyards of five hectares in four plots, Tinto Fino vineyards of more than half a century, and a small winery with 150 barrels for ageing. Here, microvinification, meticulousness and craftsmanship prevail. Pingus was the first "garage wine" that was made in our country. It also became the most expensive wine of Spain overnight.
