Bodega Gallines "Gallinas & focas 2013"

Rött vin

This fantastic wine from Bodega 4 Kilos on Mallorca is made from Manto negro and Syrah grapes. The palate is medium-bodied and a little austere with an elegant and fresh texture halfway between a Côte de Nuits and a Northern Rhône Syrah. It develops licorice, fennel and aniseed notes with time in the glass. It is a wine of character that would please the more conventional consumers as well as more audacious ones.

Origin of Wine name

‘Gallinas y Focas’ is the result of a brainstorm of ideas on behalf of the members of amadip.esment to come up with the name of the wine. When they were asked why they had chosen such a name the reply couldn’t have been clearer: hens are funny and seals clap. At the same time they were asked to come up with illustrative drawings of hens and seals that would then therefore serve to illustrate the wine label.

"A nice, charity wine initiative for the Fundación Amadip Esment (for handicapped people), the 2012 Gallinas y Focas has increased the amount of Manto Negro, a variety from the north of the island, and in this vintage contains no more than 10% Syrah. The whole berries fermented in 40,000-liter oak vats with some 30% of the foudre fermented in 500-liter barrels with the lees, in a reductive atmosphere. It is then aged for one year in barrels and a half-year in the vat and bottled with very low sulfur.

Manto Negro is a grape with very little color that translates into the wine with a slightly volatile nose showing hints of spices, leather and a mixture of red and black berry fruit that have a slight earthy, organic side. The palate is medium-bodied and a little austere with an elegant and fresh texture halfway between a Côte de Nuits and a Northern Rhône Syrah. It develops licorice, fennel and aniseed notes with time in the glass. It is a wine of character that would please the more conventional consumers as well as more audacious ones. 25,000 bottles were produced".

Cellar history

In August of 2006, Francesc Grimalt and Sergio Caballero set up 4Kilos Wines in Mallorca, a company dedicated to producing wines that reflect the strength of the grape and its nuances but with a different approach and different presentation.

Francesc Grimalt, winemaker and former partner and technician of the Anima Negra Cellar in Mallorca, is known mainly for rescuing the variety of the native grape Callet on the Balearic wine scene. Sergio Caballero is musician and founding partner and co-director of the Sonar festival of advanced music and multi media arts, and who is responsible for its image.

In late September of 2006 in the garage of a fellow winegrower and with few resources but with excellent grapes, 4kilos produced its first wine.The fermentation and maceration of the wine was undertaken in milk refrigeration units, which thanks to their form create a large, surface area of skin pulp. The remaining 50% is produced in open barrels of 225. The wine was raised for fourteen months and was launched onto the market in May 2008.

In 2007 alongside Apolonia Viticultors -Balearic Agrarian society- they converted a former sheep farm into a small winery. There they were able to produce the crop for 4Kilos 2007 and their new project 12Volts 2007 that after twelve months in the barrel will be launched onto the market at the beginning of 2009.

Their concept is not only that of variety but of the importance of the combination of strain-soil-climate-growth. From the offset they have been supported by winegrowers, very important when attempting to make rational viticulture and respect the environment. In many vineyards native vegetation cover is used in order to obtain more concentrated grapes, better ground porosity and increased microbial population.

The vineyards are located in different parts of the north and south of Mallorca, the reason for which being that they do not belong to any particular D.O. The strains are planted mostly in soils Cal Vermell a popular name to describe the Franco clay soil. The varieties that are grown are Callet, Cabernet, Sauvignon, French Fogoneu, Merlot, Monastrell and Shyra.

The name 4Kilos comes from the initial investment in the anterior currency of pesetas by both partners, which is to say, 4 million pesetas. A modest investment for this sector which demonstrates that a good wine does not depend on a great economic effort but an ambition for quality and a passion for the product. 4Kilos is unmistakable in its signature and a declaration of principles.
