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.
