"Fresh and clean, this wine is full of sweet orange and the ripe flesh of nectarine. It is perfumed with a touch of ginger and has notes of salinity and minerality. Although it doesn’t have any residual sugar, the palate naturally has the feeling of round, fullness and the flavors have a pleasant sweetness. Its vibrancy makes for a mouthwatering finish, and an easy-to-drink wine.” - Jennifer Williams, WinemakerArrow & Branch was founded by Steve and Seanne Contursi. Both have enjoyed Bordeaux wines since the 1980’s and have collected wine from a number of premium Bordeaux based, primarily Right Bank producers. One of the rising stars of Napa Valley winemaking, winemaker Jennifer Williams was previously with Araujo & Spotswoode.
4 Kilos was started in 2006 by two friends on Mallorca, Francesc Grimalt and Sergio Caballero, who had been working in other wineries and wanted to do their own thing. We're excited to have the small-production wines in the U.S. for the first time!
Francesc is a Mallorcan winemaker known for working with native grape varieties. His partner Sergio Caballero is a musician and director of the Sonar music festival. Together they started 4 Kilos in 2006, garagiste-style, vinifying their first vintage in milk refrigeration units on a sheep farm (Mallorca has lots of these). By the next year they were able to ‘upgrade’ another old sheep farm into a winery to make their line-up of 3 wines, all from indigenous varieties grown organically by small farmers. This is a very small operation trying to work with traditional lesser known local grapes, fermenting naturally, and avoiding any additives including sulfur.
4kilos 2019 “Motor Blanc” is 100% Callet, a grape native to the island; aged three months in clay vats and two months in stainless steel, this is a natural wine that offers fresh, lightly funky aromas and tart strawberry fruit that blended with hints of soil and fresh herbs
