Made from a blend of local varieties Callet and Fogoneu, along with Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot, sourced from vineyards in the north and south of the island. After hand-picking and sorting the grapes are fermented in stainless steel tanks. The fermentation temperature starts at 20ºC and gradually increases to 28ºC. 40% of the wine is aged for 9 months in 3,000-litre foudres, and the remaining wine in first and second-use 225-litre French oak barriques. This is joyful, vibrant and intensely drinkable.

Notes on the Producer

4Kilos was set up in 2006 by former Anima Negra winemaker Francesc Grimalt (known for his efforts in rescuing the local Callet grape) and musician Sergio Caballero (who is also founding partner and director of the Sonar music festival). 4Kilos’ first vintage was vinified in a milk refrigeration unit. Today they use grapes from north and south of Mallorca - some international varieties as well as local ones such as Mantonegro and Fogoneu - and vinify them in a converted sheep farm, using a combination of stainless steel and open top oak fermenters. They are committed not only to native varieties, but also to finding the right combination of strain, soil, and climate for each wine. The name 4Kilos comes from their initial investment of 4 million pesetas, which so far looks like money well spent.
