This wine is produced with purchased grapes from 200 hectares in around 750 plots and 20 different villages throughout Ribera del Duero (they now rent and work 50 hectares of these vineyards themselves). In 2018, they were able to use some 12% Garnacha and 2% other grapes, including whites that are found intermixed with the Tinta del País\/Tempranillo in the old vineyards. Garnacha adds freshness, and the wine shows it—the character of the grape comes through in the blend. It fermented with indigenous yeasts and matured mostly in 5,000-liter and 10,000-liter oak vats, but 20% of the volume aged in used French barriques for 18 months. The color is quite light (relatively speaking), bright and lively, the nose perfumed, floral and elegant, like no PSI before. The palate is medium-bodied, with fine tannins, and it feels terribly balanced and beautifully textured. It's elegant more than powerful but full of energy. This is without a doubt the finest PSI to date. Viva Garnacha! 360,000 bottles produced.

First made in 1995, it immediately developed a cult status following rave reviews from Robert Parker in the Wine Advocate, and is now regarded as one of the greatest wines made in Spain, hotly sought-after and priced accordingly. The Tempranillo-based wine is known for its density, concentrated black fruit and mineral backbone. The Pingus estate consists of several small parcels of old vines in various locations with average vine age exceeding 65 years. The top wine comes from two vineyards planted in 1929 which total 4.5 hectares (11 acres). One is on gravel and sand over chalky subsoils, and the other is mostly clay. Yields are tiny at around two tonnes per hectare (under one ton per acre). Pingus is fermented in 2000l vats prior to aging in oak barriques – duration and percentage of new oak can vary year by year. Production is only around 6600 bottles annually. This is one tenth of the production of the junior estate wine Flor de Pingus. This wine is made from 16 different vineyard lots, vinified in stainless steel tanks and aged for slightly shorter periods in barriques. Pingus also produces PSI, a more classic Ribero del Duero, which is aged in cement and large wooden vats with minimal barrique usage. Grapes come from selected local growers, who have been encouraged to implement biodynamic vineyards, and are paid according to quality in an arrangement similar to a cooperative. The estate was founded by Peter Sisseck, a Danish oenologist who previously had hailed from Bordeaux. The inaugural vinatge remains to this day as the pinnacle wine released from the estate.\u003cbr\u003e","published_at":"2023-03-30T14:53:41-04:00","created_at":"2023-03-24T13:14:31-04:00","vendor":"CaskCartel.com","type":"Wine","tags":["Country_Spain","NK2403","Other_Wine","Producer_Dominio de Pingus","Region_Ribera del Duero","Source_Bestofwines0323","Type_Red Wine","Varietal_Tempranillo"],"price":19999,"price_min":19999,"price_max":19999,"available":true,"price_varies":false,"compare_at_price":null,"compare_at_price_min":0,"compare_at_price_max":0,"compare_at_price_varies":false,"variants":[{"id":42868796588170,"title":"Default Title","option1":"Default Title","option2":null,"option3":null,"sku":"","requires_shipping":true,"taxable":false,"featured_image":null,"available":true,"name":"2018 | Dominio de Pingus | PSI","public_title":null,"options":["Default Title"],"price":19999,"weight":12247,"compare_at_price":null,"inventory_management":"shopify","barcode":"","requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_allocations":[],"quantity_rule":{"min":1,"max":null,"increment":1}}],"images":["\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/10_0f7f944f-8cc1-45c1-988d-6548582d5a1a.webp?v=1679678212"],"featured_image":"\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/10_0f7f944f-8cc1-45c1-988d-6548582d5a1a.webp?v=1679678212","options":["Title"],"media":[{"alt":"2018 | Dominio de Pingus | PSI at CaskCartel.com","id":24471438721162,"position":1,"preview_image":{"aspect_ratio":0.285,"height":1000,"width":285,"src":"\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/10_0f7f944f-8cc1-45c1-988d-6548582d5a1a.webp?v=1679678212"},"aspect_ratio":0.285,"height":1000,"media_type":"image","src":"\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/10_0f7f944f-8cc1-45c1-988d-6548582d5a1a.webp?v=1679678212","width":285}],"requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_groups":[],"content":"\u003ch2\u003eRed Wine: 2018 | Dominio de Pingus | PSI\u003cbr\u003e\n\u003c\/h2\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eA rich red with chocolate, ripe fruit, walnuts and spice.
