The sample I tasted of the 2020 Flor de Pingus was from a single barrique, so perhaps not 100% representative of what the final blend might be. But it feels really harmonious and elegant, with contained ripeness and very nice integration of the oak. The nose is super aromatic and floral, and the wine is perfumed and showy. The palate is surprisingly powerful, with some tannins that need polishing. It’s going to need some more time in barrel. There will be some 110,000 bottles that they expect to bottle in July 2022.
