This wine comes from different plots but it is usually very old vines that give birth to the Flor de Pingus. This wine, of incredible sweetness, has been the cult wine of the estate since 1995. Its dress is almost opaque, ruby in color reminiscent of velvet. Its beautiful nose develops smoky notes, ripe fruit, cherry liqueur and black coffee with slight touches of leather. The mouth unfolds with elegance and finesse on flavors of black fruit and vanilla cream.
The balance and richness of this wine are obtained thanks to the talent of the winemaker of this estate, Peter Sisseck who had the idea to create surprising and high quality wines like Pingus and Flor de Pingus.
Peter Sisseck is with Alvaro Palacios the rising star of the new generation of Spanish winemakers. Peter moved to Spain in 1990 to make wine at the Hacienda Monasterio estate. It was with Pingus that Peter exploded on the international scene. This wine has become mythical in a few years: it is one of the most sought after wines for both its quality and its rarity. It is a wine from 4 plots of old vines and the total production is approximately 25 barrels (half for the 1999 vintage) but only 7-8 will be included in the composition of the Domino of Pingus, the rest being sold under the name Flor de Pingus.
