Ekam 2015 is a distinctive wine, rather like the bodega that produces it, which settled in Costers del Segre in 2001 with the aim of reclaiming the land and returning it to its original purpose. From this base, they produce wines born of a deep respect for the environment, alongside the pursuit of innovation. In the case of this Ekam 2015, we find a wine made mainly from Riesling grapes, particularly well-suited to the conditions of the surrounding countryside - high elevations, contrasting temperatures, good exposure to sunlight. Such characteristics make this a fine, intense white wine, which will age beautifully in the bottle.

How to serve
Pares Balta is a tiny, top end winery, founded in the 1930's in an area that has been producing wine since the 1700's. The family-owned winery produces Cavas, and still red and white wines. The vineyards are spread out over five premium estates, with a total of 176 hectares of low yielding vines. The vineyards enjoy a balmy microclimate and are located only a few miles form the Mediterranean Sea in the Penedes and Cava appellations. Pars Balt uses a multitude of grape varietals for their wines, from the traditional cava grapes of Macabeo, Xarel.lo, and Parellada; to Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon for velvety rich reds; and finally, to non-traditional Catalan grape varietals such as Chardonnay or even Gewurztraminer for oak aged whites. While not an "official" organic winery, they use many eco-friendly viticulture and winemaking practices such as allowing sheep to fertilize the vineyards naturally.More about the Winery
