Reviews/Information
"94 out of 100... Flor de Pingus is all old vines fermented in stainless steel with indigenous yeasts (he hasn't needed to use selected yeasts since 2001 or so, and always in special circumstances) and matured in oak barrels, mostly used and some of different sizes. 2015 is a powerful, warm and ripe year, where the secret was to be able to harvest early to keep the freshness; Sisseck feared the year could have been another 2011, but he managed much fresher wines. The nose is very harmonious and shows no heat, and the palate is terribly balanced, with refined tannins, silky and in a way exuberant (rather than rough), ripe but suave and with enough freshness. It has the Ribera del Duero character and is also faithful to the vintage and grape, with great precision. All in all, a great vintage of Flor de Pingus, with power and elegance. Some 90,000 bottles were filled in June 2017. This should age effortlessly in bottle." - Luis Gutierrez
