Pingus 2019 75cl
100% Tinta del Pais (Tempranillo).
PINGUS IS EEN TOPWIJN UIT RIBERA DEL DUERO
Peter Sisseck, van oorsprong een Deen is de maker van Pingus. De naam van het domein: Dominio de Pingus. 'Pingus' was zijn bijnaam in Denemarken.
De wijn van Dominio de Pingus is afkomstig van oude wijnstokken en er wordt biodynamisch gewerkt. De laatste jaren ligt de nadruk steeds minder op houtrijping en wordt er gebruik gemaakt van twee jaar oude vaten in plaats van nieuwe.
Pingus 2019 is vanaf 2023 of dronk, maar kan zich tenminste tot 2035 nog verder ontwikkelen.
The Wine Advocate:
I tasted the bottled 2019 Pingus two weeks after bottling. Even at this early stage and after the operation, the wine is super harmonious and elegant. They really outdid themselves here and produced an amazingly fresh, aromatic and harmonious wine in a warm vintage. It's incredibly textured, with refined, very fine-grained and chalky tannins. It's very balanced, and there's no excess of anything; it has 14% alcohol, perfect ripeness and a velvety mouthfeel. It gets more floral with time in the glass, getting nuanced and really interesting. It delivers what the barrel sample promised one year ago, when the wine already surprised me. I think the word that best describes this wine is precision—it's clean, focused, balanced and delineated. Bravo! 7,900 bottles produced. It was bottled in September 2021.
I tasted the bottled 2018s from Dominio de Pingus and also the unbottled 2019s, as the wines are sold as "futures," or "en primeur," through their importers and then, in most cases, offered by the importers to their final customers. 2018 is a stellar vintage with an amazing Pingus and the best PSI to date. 2019 was warmer, but the wines have an unusual combination of ripeness and elegance that Sisseck told me he's never seen before. Some of the 2019s might end up being better than the 2018 counterparts. Today, the 2019 Flor de Pingus is showing exceptionally well.
I published an article about the wines from Peter Sisseck in September 2020. I tasted the bottled 2018s and unbottled 2019s. The 2019s have not yet been bottled, so I didn't taste any new wines, but I include those notes here again for context and completeness of the wines from the Duero.
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.
