Description

Possibly 4 Kilos most personal wine (named after the winemakers) Grimalt Cabellero is a blend of mostly Callet with some Fogoneu from small parcels on the southeast part of the island. An ambitious wine that delivers the complexity of ripe fruit seasoned with spicy and well-integrated oak, but is not at all heavy. Local variety Callet at its most elegant.

Grapes are destemmed and fermented in oak butts, and further macerated on the skins for up to 20 days. Aged for 14 months in new 600-litre French oak barrels.

4Kilos was set up in 2006 by former Anima Negra winemaker Francesc Grimalt (known for his efforts in rescuing the Callet variety) 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.
