4 Kilos 'Tanuki Bob' Mallorca

, 2018

Spain Red

Mallorca 75cl

" The 2018 Tanuki Bob is 90% Mantonegro with 10% Syrah, a Mediterranean red from organically farmed vines. The destemmed but uncrushed grapes fermented with indigenous yeasts in 4,000-liter oak foudres, where the wine matured for nine months, followed by another nine months in stainless steel. This is super aromatic, expressive and showy, with a profile that reminded me more of the Gallinas & Focas than the other reds, showing the roundness and juiciness of Mantonegro, which is a softer wine than Callet. It's showy, open and juicy, very easy to drink but with the seriousness of the chalky tannins. This is also a collaboration with the Amadip Esment foundation. 6,300 bottles produced. It was bottled in May 2020." 93 pts Luis Gutierrez Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.

I love the 4 Kilos wines and this is an organic red made in collaboration with Amadip.Esment and 4 Kilos. This is bright and juicy with lovely red fruits, spice and some minerality. Light with a hint of funk, fresh and vibrant. Great food wine -delicious with some spicy Chicken fajitas tonight.
Characterful and very tasty.
