Forsalg på 2020 årgangen fra Peter Sisseck
Som det fremgår af Peter Sissecks omtale af Pingus 2020 og Flor de Pingus 2020 anser han årgangen for den smukkeste til dato – og tilsvarende vurderer han også 2020 som den hidtil bedste årgang for Ψ PSI
Peter Sissecks ord om vinene i 2020:
Harvest before and after the rains. Initially we were worried that the rains would affect the wine in a negative way, but luckily that did not happen, we did do a small bleeding of the tanks after the rain to help concentrate the grapes a bit. Fermented at low 23 C the wine has a very good fresh nose, very soft and quite transparent in color, really the opposite of what you expect in a Ribera wine, where the norm has become inky black extracted wines. I really believe Tempranillo is a very “feminine“ grape and should be handled with great care and delicate. The 8-10 % Grenache give the wine a lovely touch of strawberries and this juicy watermelon finish. As the aging is done in big oak tanks it is more difficult to judge the wine as the aging is slower at this point. But 2020 PSI is going to be a nudge up on the elegance ladder. If the 2019 was a “warmer” vintage and more generous in style this is really Ribera del Duero form the aromatic and fineness driven side. Very good concentration will give this plenty of aging potential but should be able to hit road running, something we have tried to achieve since the beginning, this year we got it!!
Flor de Pingus
As Pingus, Flor de Pingus is a beautiful wine. A wine slightly less concentrated than Pingus itself but so well balanced. Beautiful violets very difficult to find in normal Ribera del Duero wines lend this wine a very “old world” aspect. The silkiest tannins lead to a long and smooth finish. The wine is brought up in 25 % new wood it is strange that this is very helpful for Flor de Pingus and not for Pingus. Maybe it has to do with the fineness of the tannins, in Flor de Pingus the new oak really helps to smooth out the wine. A lot of freshness also shows in Flor de Pingus, in this juicy and sexy wine. I really love it.
