Profile of Dominio de Pingus Winery

Dominio de Pingus Winery, Ribera del Duero - Spain

Pingus is a very new and hugely successful winery in Ribera del Duero. Run by a young, Danish born renowned winemaker, Peter Sisseck, the winery has produced astonishing results (and prices) in a very short period of time. Located in a winery said by John Radford, Spanish wine expert, to resemble a pink flying saucer, Pingus is part of an elite club of top Spanish wine producers. Yields are incredibly low, the wines are extremely concentrated, allocation is miniscule. Crianza and Reserva wines are made from ancient, gnarled Tempranillo vines. Sisseck is said to be a genius in the vineyard, where pruning has become an artform.

Dominio de Pingus Ribera del Duero 1998

"The 1998 Pingus is opaque black in color, with evolved, stunningly sweet aromatics. Notes of cassis, licorice, cigar box, spice cake, and toasty oak emerge with coaxing. This full-bodied, opulently-textured, viscous, concentrated wine is fat, expansively flavored, and multilayered. It is an outstanding effort, with well-integrated acidity and tannin. Anticipated maturity: 2001-2020." 91-93 Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate #122
