Callet produces red fruit and floral driven wines of pale colour intensity and lower tannins than Manto Negro. However, it ripens slightly later and thus retains marginally higher levels of acidity and achieves phenolic ripeness at lower levels of alcohol, a key asset in our warm island climate. Callet is probably the red variety we’re most excited about, and we have great expectations for how these vines will develop in the future.
The plants are still young and need some years to fully show their vast potential. The perfume of Callet can be almost hauntingly beautiful with its rose and violet notes that add beauty to several of our blends while it grows old enough to stand on its own
