Description

The 2000 Flor de Pingus exhibits a deep ruby/purple color, a roasted meat/creosote-scented nose, and big, meaty, herb-tinged flavors that are both substantial and opulent. Fleshy and chewy, it is a hedonistic as well as intellectual turn-on to enjoy over the next 7-8 years. - WA90

Powerful yet graceful, this modern red shows lush cassis, mineral and smoky flavors on a firm, yet unobtrusive, frame. It's harmonious and complex, with a long mineral and spicy finish. Drink now through 2009. - WS90

The Winery

Like those other esteemed names, Pingus has a quality that is often lacking in today's "modern" wines-a sense of utter individuality. There is no other wine in the world, let alone Spain, that is quite like Pingus, and that singularity is one of the fundamental requirements for great wine.

Pingus is produced by the visionary Danish winemaker Peter Sisseck. Peter arrived in Spain in 1993 to manage a new project, Hacienda Monasterio. While planting and developing Monasterio, he began to dream about the old vines he saw dotted around the Ribera del Duero landscape. By the 1995 vintage, Peter had found several ancient vineyards that inspired him to make his own wine. He called it "Pingus," after his childhood nickname.

Peter's winery work has been widely imitated, and many wines can mimic the exotic textures that Pingus possesses. Yet, while they might approach Pingus' style, none of these newcomers has the substance that defines Pingus.
