Parker review

A straight Riesling with a pinch of Albariño, the 2013 Ekam was fermented in small stainless vats with indigenous yeasts in a cold vintage when the grapes developed some botrytis. The wine was kept in contact with the lees in stainless steel vats for nine months. This one is clearly suffering from the bottling and still has plenty of notes derived from the sulfur, under which seems to be the telltale aromas of lime, white flowers and a subdued minerality. The palate feels very young with plenty of baby fat to be burned in bottle, but precise and fresh, with the acidity lifting the finish and leaving a clean, fresh sensation in the palate. more 4,631bottles produced.Raül Bobet keeps producing superb wines high in the Pyrenees in the Costers del Segre appellation. 93/100.

Press

Antonio Galloni's Vinous.com: 92/100. (90% riesling and 10% albarino; fermented in a combination of ancient stone lagars and stainless steel tanks, then aged in steel): Pale yellow. Vibrant aromas of lemon pith, white flowers and minerals, with a bright mineral topnote gaining strength in the glass. Dry and nervy on the palate, offering taut citrus and orchard fruit flavors and a hint of ginger. Closes dry and stony, with excellent clarity and cling.
