Castell D'Encus "Ekam" Riesling/Albarino 2020 (Costers del Segre, Spain)
This wonderfully zippy dry wine is a blend of 85% Riesling and 15% Albariño. Both grape varietals here are naturally high in acidity, making for a spectacular food wine, especially alongside spicy food, as well as an incredibly ageable white wine. The rich complexity of the Riesling will develop further as it ages, but it is fun and fresh and ready to drink right now as well. One of our favorite things about Castell d’Encus is the existence of 9 stone fermenters from the 12th century, manually carved by Hospitaller monks, the first inhabitants of Castilló d’Encús. The estate uses 6 of these medieval stone vats to ferment part of their wines!
