Spain's Next Cult Wine From Pingus's Peter Sisseck 95 Points - Quinta Sardonia 2009 - also a great Toro Value under $20!

Murphy's Wine Shop - Thursday, March 22, 2012

Greetings from Murphy's Wine Shop,

I just had the wonderful opportunity to meet importer Eric Solomon, and taste through his portfolio in Chicago last week.  While the wines are still fresh in my mind, and honestly still stained to my finger, I wanted to offer a pair of amazing Spanish wines that are already here in the state and ready to go!

Quinta Sardonia 2009
(Spain’s next cult wine from Pingus’s Peter Sisseck)
Bottle Price: $51.99/bottle
Case Price: $44.44/bottle!!

Flor de Vetus Toro 2009
(great, modern entry level Tempranillo from the owners of Finca Villacreces)
Bottle Price: $19.99/bottle
Case Price: $17.06/bottle!!
Solid Case: $204.72+Tax

Just reply back, and let me know how much I can hold for you.  Wines will arrive Friday.

The Details:


First, the Quinta Sardonia was one of probably 3 wines at the tasting that really, really moved me. Located on the outskirts of Ribero del Duero, just past Vega Sicilia, this biodynamic project from Pingus’s Peter Sisseck blends international grape varietals with the native Tinto Fino (Tempranillo).  Peter created this project to pay homage to both Bordeaux and native varietals inside a vineyard he could create and plant himself.

51% Tinto Fino, 29% Cabernet Sauvignon,  6% Merlot, 5% Syrah, 5% Petite Verdot, 2% Cabernet Franc, and 2% Malbec

Here is the (92-95 Point) review from Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate:

“The 2009 Quinta Sardonia, tasted from a barrel sample, is purple/black in color with an enticing bouquet of smoke, game, lightly roasted herbs, blackberry, and blueberry. Supple, ripe, and sweetly-fruited, this lengthy offering should reach its peak 2016 and drink well through 2029 . . . It is already being proclaimed by some as Spain’s next cult wine . . . (92-95 Points)”

Just an amazing wine, and considering the cult status of Peter Sisseck and Pingus, this is very reasonably priced.  I can’t imagine this will be available for very long.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++


Next, the Flor de Vetus Toro is a beautiful entry level Tempranillo from Vetus – a new project from the owners of Finca Villacreces (You may remember my Pruno email from last year).

100% Tinta de Toro (Tempranillo)
Aged 10 months in New French and American Oak
This is a superb value, rich and modern in style, and very approachable.  Reminds me of some other well-scored Toros that have skyrocketed in price in the last few years.  A great buy!

Here is the 90+ Point review from Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate:

“This is the first release of the entry level offering, the 2009 Flor de Vetus made from 100% Tinta de Toro. Deep purple in color, it offers up a mildly brooding bouquet with hints of tar, chocolate, espresso, spice box, and assorted black fruits. Dense on the palate with layers of fruit, this plush, savory effort will evolve for 1-2 years but can be approached now.”

Please let me know if I can hold these for you!
Cheers, and thanks for being a friend of Murphy’s Wine Shop in Atlanta
