When I read the vintage report for the 2017 Pingus PSI, it reminded me of 1961 in Bordeaux. A severe spring frost cut the crop 70% to 80%. Then a very warm growing season, on top of the extremely low yields, led to a wine of unusual concentration, intensity and “sevé” (or “sappiness”).

 

Given all this, however, I was surprised to find that the character of this 2017 was more red fruit than black. Because of the frost, it’s also almost pure Tempranillo this year – and strikes me as a PSI that’s somehow both more concentrated than usual and more savory/complex.

 

As always, it’s by far the best value in the Pingus range, as well as probably the best value of the Ribera del Duero.

 

This is, by the way, from 700 individual old-vine plots, organically farmed by small growers that Sisseck is helping.
