The wine

The name 4 Kilos represents the 4 million pesetas of the initial investment Francesc Grimalt and Sergio Caballero made to set up this Mallorcan winery. A relatively small amount of money which has shown, over time, that great wines depend more on hard work aiming for quality and a passion for the land and vines than on large economic investments.

Like all great wines, it deserves a special treatment. Decanting the wine will free its fragrances of wild berries and mountain herbs. Its smooth velvety texture, immensely delicate tannins, and splendid balance come together to give it a never-ending finish. A wonderful example of a wine to prove just how wise an investment Grimalt and Caballero made back in 2006.

What does this wine taste like?

4 Kilos is also the name of the winery's flagship wine. A wonderful cherry-coloured wine with an unusually complex nose. It is a deep, mineral wine, soothingly aromatic and spicy, but also a wine brimming with excellent ripe fruit. Its fine sensations and width in the mouth boast of Mediterranean elegance and harmony, accompanied by aromas of wild herbs and flowers. A fresh yet flavoursome wine, both light and stunning, it expresses all the character expected of goblet-pruned vines over 60 years old, leaving the nuances it obtains from its time in wood in the background. The intense minerality of iron-rich reddish soils can be enjoyed in every sip, transporting us subtly to the first cool September breezes felt when the grapes were ready for harvesting.

Wine critics reviewsReviews by Parker

The eponymous red 2020 4 Kilos is a delicate, pure Callet bottled at 12% alcohol from 20- to 50-year-old, organically farmed vines in different vineyards on call vermell red soils in the village of Felanitx. It fermented in equal parts in stainless steel and oak vats with indigenous yeasts and matured in third- and fourth-use 600-liter Allier oak barrels for 12 months. It's perfumed and elegant, with notes of dried rose petal and talcum powder, perfumed and spicy, with orange peel freshness. This is serious and balanced, not exuberant, it's even a little shy, insinuating and tasty in a very subtle way. It's clean and precise. It takes over your taste buds in a quiet and harmonious way. The tannins are very fine and give it a chalky texture and a tasty finish. This has to be their finest vintage to date. Bravo! 16,000 bottles and 300 magnums were produced. It was bottled in February 2022.
