Pingus is widely regarded as one of the world’s greatest red wines: the brainchild of owner/winemaker Peter Sisseck (originally from Denmark) who established the estate in the mid-nineties. Pingus, which is located in the La Horra region of the Ribera del Duero, crafts three wines: Flor de Pingus, a single barrel cuvee called Amelia, and the flagship Pingus. The vines are over 35 years of age and farmed biodynamically since 2005.
Flor de Pingus is the second wine of the illustrious estate. However, it’s hard to call a wine of this quality a second wine! Flor de Pingus comes from old vine fruit just and is produced to be able to age for numberous years just like the first wine. Aromas of cassis, violet, cedar and tobacco on the nose. The palate is powerful and rich with incredible structure. This is serious Ribera made by one of the finest winemakers in the world.
