4 Kilos Vinícola 12 Volts
60% Callet-Fogoneu, 20% Syah, 10% Cabernet, 10% Merlot.
4 Kilos Vinícola is intensely vibrant, this is a wine that provides a jolt of energy (figuratively, and almost literally). It has bright red and black fruit flavours with mild tannins making this easy to drink and pairs well with most food. The earthy undertone and warm spices that builds provide many layers on the palate.
Disclaimer, drink at your own risk! The Spanish winemakers came up with this name because they claim that this bottle of Red “connects to the central nervous system and recharges batteries”.
Grapes were manually selected before maceration and fermentation in stainless steel vats. Temperature was kept around 20°C initially and then kept below 28°C. The maceration took place for approximately 20 days.
An unusually mild and dry winter in 2016 led to a lack of foliage, followed by rains in February providing ample water to the plants to aid their development. Thankfully, a rainy spring brought things back into line, allowing the year to progress normally. With a dry summer, the quality of the harvest was unaffected and the grapes reached their standard maturity.
