The eponymous wine of Mallorca's '4 Kilos' winery puts the spotlight firmly on a local, lesser-known variety called Callet. The results are a pure representation of Mallorca's volcanic terroir, offering a snapshot into the amazing potential of these Island wines. It is fresh, focused and serious, with ethereal notes of red berry fruit, Mediterranean herbs, clove and a touch of perfumed violet. A beautifully balanced and pleasurable wine.
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 a 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 M and Fogoneu - and vinify them in a converted sheep farm, using a combination of stainless steel and o 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.
