    Raul Bobet is one of the greatest winemakers in Spain.  He established Castell D’Encus in 2001 to escape from the dramatic effects of global warming.  The estate sits at 1000 meters above sea level, in the northern part of DO Costers del Segre, in the Pallars Jussà, an isolated, cool, and quiet place in Catalonia, ideal for hermits! Farming organically, he chose to plant Riesling, Pinot Noir, Albariño, Sauvignon, Sémillon, Syrah, and the classic Bordeaux varieties. Soils are mainly limestone, low in organic matter, hold excellent sun exposure, coupled with significant day/night temperature variations, ensuring fine ripeness allied to racy acidity.

    Ekam is a blend of Riesling and Albariño. Elegant and delicate with crisp acidity. Citrus, apricot, and floral notes.  Light-bodied but complex.

    Wine Style Meter

     

    Our ongoing quest at Winecroft is to do away with winespeak so we can talk clearly about the wine. One of the ways we achieve this is by using our Wine Style Meter, a key tool to match you with new wines we believe that you’ll love. We do this by matching the style of each wine on our list to your personal taste profile, which is established with the science-based Winecroft taste test and will evolve as you taste new wines.

    The needle on the Wine Style Meter points you towards the following wines:

    Once you settle the needle on the style of wine you like, our Wine Style Meter is a quick, clear and simple way of gauging whether you’ll like a particular wine from our wonderful winelist.
