Flor de Pingus 2004 is the second wine from this cult Spanish estate – an affordable introduction to the Pingus legend – crafted from very old Tinto Fino vines indigenous to the region. The 2004 vintage was purchased in its original case.
Pingus is widely regarded as one of the world's greatest red wines: the brainchild of owner/winemaker Peter Sisseck (originally from Denmark) who established the estate in the mid-nineties. Pingus, which is located in the La Horra region of the Ribera del Duero, crafts three wines: Flor de Pingus, a single barrel cuvee called Amelia, and the flagship Pingus. The vines are over 35 years of age and farmed biodynamically since 2005.

"The sublime 2004 Flor de Pingus lacks the pure size and power of the 2005 but more than makes up for it with a regal elegance. The aromatics are already revealing considerable complexity while on the palate it is succulent, impeccably balanced, and mouth-coating." robertparker.com
