2019 En Primeurs: Dominio de Pingus
Dominio de Pingus (Ribera del Duero)
The growth period in 2019 was determined in part by the dry winter preceding it. A little rainfall was recorded in spring but not sufficient and the limited amount of accumulated rainfall, together with a high rise in temperatures in mid-July indicated that grapes could develop strong tannins and produce too high an alcohol content. To correct this, the decision was taken to leave more grapes on the plants than usual and together with the deep roots this allowed for a good, if rather early, ripening process. The PSI wine is considered to be one of the best vintages so far of this wine; a juicy wine with pleasant tannins. Flor de Pingus is a superb example of perfect maturity, whereas Pingus has exceeded expectations to become a wonderfully deep and crystal-clear wine.
