Tasting Notes

    Deep ruby. Smoky, highly perfumed dark berry and violet scents are complemented by hints of vanilla and pipe tobacco. Sweet and seamless on the palate, offering blackberry preserve and blueberry flavors that are given lift and spine by juicy acidity. In a silky, fruit-driven style, finishing with strong punch and spicy persistence. Supple tannins lend shape.

    The 2014 PSI is a blend of Tempranillo with 10% Garnacha and perhaps 1% of other grapes found interplanted with the other varieties in the old vineyards, mostly white Albillo. The idea here is to protect the old vineyards that are disappearing from Ribera del Duero and provide some added value to the grapes coming from them. They have identified a grand total of only 56 hectares of Garnacha in Ribera del Duero, and they have rented 20 of those to save them, because they were set to be uprooted. It has great freshness and energy, with an herbal/leafy touch in the nose that also adds complexity. It's a wine that seems to improve from vintage to vintage, and I believe the jump will be noticeable when they produce it in their own winery from the 2015 vintage onward. The Garnacha always has a lower pH than the Tempranillo, and helps to provide an extra spark of freshness. This is an approachable Ribera, but keeping the character of yesteryear. This is really what Ribera del Duero used to be: all old vineyards and no new oak whatsoever. Kudos to that! 210,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in July 2016. From 2013, there will also be a Gran Reserva-style of PSI, with long aging (three+ years), of which a ruby-colored barrel sample really transported me to the great wines of yesteryear. I cannot wait to drink the bottled version soon! Drink 2017-2020

Producer

Peter Sisseck

Peter Sisseck in a Danish winemaker who burst onto the scene in the mid 1990s with his small, exquisitely tended 4 ha estate in Spain's Ribera del Duero. Peter is nothing if not a master of Tempranillo grown at high altitude, and since its first vintage (1995) Pingus has gone on to become Spain's pre-eminent cult wine. Peter and his team also make a second label, Flor de Pingus, from Tempranillo grown around the small town of La Horra, just to the east of Dominio de Pingus. 'PSI' is Peter's latest project in Ribera del Duero, for which he has joined forces with local growers to make a wine which represents the pinnacle of old vine Tempranillo in the region. His attention to detail in the cellar is astonishing, where traditional winemaking techniques are combined with the precision of their in-house atomic laboratory. His wines have a unique style and grace.

Region

Ribera del Duero

The Duero valley cuts a swathe across central northern Spain all the way to Portugal where it is called the Douro and is famous as the home of port. On the Spanish side, a relatively new but significant and exciting area for wine production has grown up around the city of Valladolid and was granted DO status in 1982. Ribera del Duero's potential was spotted long before in the middle of the 19th century at Bodegas Vega Sicilia, Spain's undisputed equivalent of a first growth Claret. High above sea-level, Ribera del Duero is an area of extreme temperatures with the potential to produce deep-coloured, intensely flavoured red wines from tempranillo grapes (known locally as tinto fino). The picture is not straightforward as some producers have started favouring an overly-extracted style which appeals to certain elements of the media. Additionally, often producers do not own their own vineyards, so the grape growers have a stranglehold on what to charge for their grapes and wine prices have risen dramatically as a result. However, many producers are making outstanding wines, which are still great value for money.
