Dominio de Pingus Ψ PSI 2013

Ribera del Duero, Castilla-Leon, SpainHaving successfully created Dominio de Pingus in Valladolid, Peter Sisseck enjoyed worldwide fame along with its two main wines: Pingus and its second wine, Flor de Pingus. Psi Pingus Ψ is described as Sisseck’s give back wine. Named after the 23rd letter of the Greek alphabet (Ψ) it has come from working with farmers to upgrade their vineyards so they can achieve better financial gain. The project began in 2006, and after years of work a select group of farmers have turned their old vine tempranillo plots around using biodynamic and organic farming practices. The wine is made by Sisseck and Pablo Rubio in large concrete vats before it is aged in wooden tanks and oak barrels. Quietly enticing with floral red fruit, licorice and spice, all quietly contained. Its main attraction is the silky, deftly light temperate tannins that carry the quiet savoury anise and cassis flavours. Elegance and minerality; it’s my favourite combination.Tasted: 14 September 2017Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 51.00 private wine shops Producer: Dominio de PingusDistributors: International Cellars Inc.
