2011 Dominio de Pingus Flor de Pingus


Region: Ribera del Duero, Spain

Grape Variety: Tempranillo

ABV: 15.5%

The 2011 Flor de Pingus is a ripe and powerful Flor that reached 15.5% alcohol in a very warm vintage. The wine is always a combination of 16 separate plots of Tempranillo from the village of La Horra, some young, and some old that are fermented individually in 4,000-liter stainless steel vats. In this ripe and powerful vintage that Sisseck compares with 2009, he decided to age the wine for 18 months in used French oak barrels. This shows riper than other 2011s from Sisseck, with aromas of ripe plums, dark cherries, cinnamon, and cloves with a slight lactic touch. The palate is full-bodied, lush and round, with plenty of glycerin, but fresh flavors and good balancing acidity. A powerful, slightly warm vintage of Flor. - Luis Gutirrez 91 Points
