4Kilos

The origins of the 4Kilos winery are humble. A “kilo” is old Spanish slang for one million Pesetas, the former Spanish currency. The 4Kilos name comes from founders Francesc Grimalt and Sergio Caballero’s small initial investment of 4 million Pesetas. The two converted an old Mallorcan sheep farm into their winery, vinifying their first bottles in an old milk refrigerator.

Francesc is a former Anima Negra winemaker and Sergio Caballero is a musician and founding partner of Barcelona’s Sonar Music Festival. The two founded 4Kilos in 2006, leveraging their small initial investment and innovative winemaking practices to produce vintages that elegantly express the strength and complexity of Mallorcan grapes. The vineyards are planted in different parts of the north and south of Mallorca, celebrating variety and not being confined to a single DO.

Francesc has a special place in his heart for the Amadip Esment Foundation which works with children and young people with special needs. Francesc had the brilliant idea of involving the the Amadip Esment children in the winemaking process. Nowadays, the kids help with grape growing, making the wine and even designing 4Kilos’ memorable labels, reflecting the winery’s fun and playful personality. What’s more, all net profits from 4Kilos are donated to Amadip Esment.

Francesc and the team at 4 Kilos have agreed to allow the Cosecha team to make their first barrel of Manto Negro with them. We are thrilled to have brought this very special wine to market in Fall 2019.

    The blend is 60% Callet y fogoneu, with 20% Syrah, 10% Cabernet and 10% Merlot. Aging the Callet y fogoneau in American oak and the remaining juice in seasoned French oak, 12 Volts is a fresh, spicy, lifted and totally captivating wine.

    Excellent balance and freshness, as befits a wine from the current Peñin winery of the year, the beguiling 12 Volts shows ripe red fruits on the nose. On the palate, freshness shines through, creating an elegant, juicy finish that leaves you wanting more.

    The hand harvested Manto Negro (90%) and Syrah (10%) grapes, grown in calcareous clay with boulders that heat-up in the afternoon sun, are fermented with natural yeasts in stainless, then matured for 12 months in 500L French barrels, followed by 6 months in 4000L French oak foudre and 6 months in bottle.

    Garnet in colour, with a purple trim, the nose provides expressive aromas of raspberry and blueberry. You may also note a subtle menthol background and toasted wood.

    In the mouth, the entry is light, with sweet tannins at the fore. Nicely balanced with excellent acidity, there is an abundance of red fruit to engage the palate, followed by a spacious, elegant and persistent finish.

    This poster-child Mallorca wine… 100% Callet-Fogoneu… has hand picked grapes, exposed to wild, natural yeasts and aged in 600L French oak. The wine is cherry in colour with a hint of purpled at the rim. The high intensity nose smells of raspberry, forest berries, dark Mediterranean scrub and a hint of saline.

    The palate has a savory, fruit flavour, marked by a pleasant woodsiness and hints of herbs. As the wine develops, it releases fresh saline notes. Very well balanced, with no overt glycerol, 4 Kilos has a nice vibrancy and sense of life without any aggressive tension.
