12 VOLTS, 4 Kilos Vinicola 2015/16



A wine of excellent balance and freshness, as befits a wine from the current Peñin winery of the year, this beguiling mix of local Callet Fogoneu and Merlot, Cabernet and Syrah shows ripe red fruits on the nose. On the palate, the freshness shines through, creating an elegant juicy finish that leaves you wanting more. Great with chuletas or grilled chicken.

Decanter.com – “The winery was only founded in 2006, but has raced off the starting blocks, rising right to the top of the Mallorca rankings. The name of the winery comes from the money ? 4 million pesetas, or 4 kilos (E24,000), invested at the outset, starting off in a garage and now in a converted sheep farm. The vibrant brand image comes from co-founder, musician and arts entrepreneur Sergio Caballero. Do not be taken in by the humour, though ? the winemaking is serious. Partner Francesc Grimalt was winemaker at the award-winning Anima Negra, and is credited with rediscovering the local varietal Callet. They source grapes from all over the island, so produce wines as VT Mallorca. “
