The 2015 vintage in Spain (and most of Europe for that matter) is considered by many to be the best vintage this century! Add to it one of Spain's finest producers, Pingus, and you have a recipe for excellence!
Pingus, which Robert Parker called "one of the most outstanding wines produced in Spain," popped onto the wine scene with its legendary 1995 vintage. Since then, the wine, which sells for a modest $900 per bottle, is a rarely found treasure for collectors of all levels.
The scarcity of the Pingus wines has been frustrating wine enthusiasts around the world - until now! We are proud to feature one of the elusive Pingus wines, Flor de Pingus (also known as "Baby Pingus").
Surprisingly approachable in its youth, the 2015 Flor de Pingus delivers uncanny balance, especially for a young wine. Dark berry, hints of plum, black cherry, anise, and bitter chocolate will fill your glass and the room. Earth, white peppercorn and sweet pipe tobacco leaf are reminiscent of an upper echelon left- bank Bordeaux.
Flor de Pingus is made from the estate's younger vines, but vinified with the same care as its big-brother. Only 50 cases have been allocated to the North-East.
Be sure not to miss out on some of this precious Pingus!
