It may be the #5 Wine but 100pt Pingus Winemaker Delivers the Ribera Steal of the Year: The 2016 Pingus PSI
There is no other wine in the world, let alone Spain, that is quite like Pingus. Danish Winemaker Peter Sisseck, is the genius behind one of Spain´s most cult and expensive wines “Pingus” . The Pinugs wines, have become icons in the Spanish wine world, with Dominio de Pingus arguably the most expensive, high-demand wine produced in Spain and a 100-pointer again in 2014! Nowadays, Peter Sisseck is a star and his wines are priced to match. But that doesn’t mean he’s isn’t still in the ‘value’ game when it comes to premium Ribera del Duero wines.
So, PSI was born. Thanks to Peter the old vineyards are being rescued from the chemical companies and producing healthier grapes, which he purchases from the growers themselves who he’s already assisting in the vineyard. The process of rehabilitating the Ribera del Duero has resulted in some pretty kick-butt wine. And it just gets better every year! Peter calls the 2016 ‘the wine he always dreamed of making“. And, boy, after tasting the 2016 PSI all we can say is Peter better be careful because this wine is knocking on Flor de Pingus’ door at less than half the price! You need a few bottles (or more) of this delicious, under-priced labor of love from one of the world’s finest winemakers.
