Rated 93 by Wine Advocate
2019 was a warmer year, and the 2019 Ekam is a little riper and has lower acidity but still has 6.3 grams of sugar, which makes it off-dry and not apt for all foods. It's mostly Riesling that softened by a touch of Albariño, and it fermented in stainless steel and was kept with the lees for six months. It reminds me of the little-known category of German wine called feinherb, where the wines are delicate and have a touch of sugar, a little more than a trocken. It's more gentle, more open and less sweet than the 2018. There is great purity and balance, and it's subtle, elegant and very clean. Drink this as you would drink a kabinett. Like most of these wines, it has the acidity, stuffing and balance to develop in bottle. I understood it much better than the 2018. 30,000 bottles and 300 magnums produced. It was bottled in March 2020. ... More details

Region: Cataluna

Spain's stunning coastal region of Catalunya has long since impressed the world with its wide range of excellent wines, the result of a wine history which stretches back to pre-Roman time, and it has been a key stopping point on some of the most ancient wine trade routes on earth. It isn't difficult to understand why Catalunya has had so much influence over the ages – the rich and fertile soils, the heat tempered by Mediterranean breezes, the fine grape varietals which flourish there have all helped establish Catalunya as an important global wine producer. Today, Catalunya is perhaps most famous for its 'methode champenoise' sparkling Cava wines, however, the region's soils support a wide range of grape varietals, and as such, the two hundred or so bodegas in the region produce a large variety of superb wines and wine styles.

Country: Spain

Ever since the Phoenicians and Romans brought their knowledge of vine cultivation to Spanish soils, the country's culture has grown alongside wine production, with wine being a vital part of Spanish identity and Spanish traditions. Each region of Spain has a wine quite distinct from the others, and it is produced by smallholders and families as much as it is by large companies and established wineries. From the relatively mild and lush regions of La Rioja to the arid plateaus that surround Madrid, grapes are grown in abundance for the now booming Spanish wine industry, and new laws and regulations have recently been put in place to keep the country's standards high. By combining traditional practices with modern technology, Spanish wineries are continuing to produce distinctive wines of great character, flavor and aroma, with the focus shifting in recent decades to quality over quantity.
