Tempranillo. Schön ausgewogener, eleganter Ribera del Duero. Der kleine Pingus steht dem Grossen sehr nahe. Aus der Zauberhand von Peter Sisseck. Das Traubengut stammt aus Rebparzellen welche nach biodynamischen Kriterien angebaut wurden. Schöne schwarze Frucht in der Nase. Säure und Tannine perfekt ausbalanciert. Ein wahrer Genuss!

The Wine Advocate I Jan 31, 2023 I Luis Gutiérrez
There is around 20% new oak in the 2020 Flor de Pingus, and because it has a little younger vines (there was a land-consolidation project in La Horra in 2006!), there'll be some Garnacha starting in 2021 and maybe some oak vats for aging too. All this shows the direction, where he found structure and volume in the palate, with textured tannins. It's harmonious and elegant, aromatic and floral, perfumed and showy, with contained ripeness and around 14% alcohol. The palate is quite powerful, with abundant but fine tannins.

I tasted the bottled 2020s from Peter Sisseck and the samples from 2021 that I had already tasted last year. 2020 was the year of COVID-29, a very unusual year with circumstances previously unheard of. They had a lot of rain in spring that allowed for wines with finesse (which he compared with 1996 in some things). In 1995, he harvested late (October) with 1,200 kilos per hectare, and the wine did not reach 14% alcohol. If you did those yields and dates today, you'd get 20% alcohol, so there is a need to adjust viticulture. In 2020, they started harvesting on September 10 (which is early, but they started even earlier in 2022, on September 7), but the question is always about lack of concentration and green tannins. They are very careful with extraction, shorter pumping overs, etc. He considers 2012 and 2016 years of change, and the wines are now subtler even if analytics are similar, but the perception is different. The experience is that when the wines are above 15% alcohol, they do not age well. 2020 has fine tannins, but it was a warm year of approachable wines, when they did a slightly longer élevage than he thought at first (they were bottled in July 2022 with some more time in tank because he bought a new bottling line). There will be a new wine from 2021 produced by the next generation, Leonora Sisseck and husband Carlos del Río Jr., from a young vineyard planted with 15% Garnacha, produced in a young and fresh style, quite different. I didn't taste anything from 2022, but he told me the result is better than expected, because he was seriously worried if they were going to be able to harvest any grapes at all!
I tasted the bottled 2019s from Pingus, a great vintage that follows the path of 2016 and 2018 (and continued by 2020). 2020 saw similar yields as 2019, both lower than 2018. 2018 was more challenging, and 2019 was a sunny year when they harvested early to keep the freshness. Sisseck compares 2019 with 2015, a very ripe year; but they managed to get fresher wine in 2019, and the wine overdelivered for their expectations. The bottled 2019 Pingus is truly outstanding. They thought of bottling it earlier but finally did a longer élevage. 2020 is also a warm and ripe year but with more finesse than 2019. As I saw last year, the wines age in oak vats and oak barrels, not only in barrel, and the integration of the oak is getting better and better.
