Tasting Notes

Weighty and complex yet retaining a bright freshness characterized by blackberry and raspberry fruit and spice. The contact with French oak gives this wine a new world feel while remaining firmly and typically Spanish with the 60% old Grenache and Carignan.

Producer details

La Bascula is the name given to the Spanish wine range produced by Ed Adams MW and Bruce Jack. The term means weighing scales, and represents the balance between indigenous Spanish varieties and modern winemaking. The philosophy is small volumes and really high quality. The wines are made to truly represent excellent value for money and really show off the areas they come from. The result is fine, ripe, concentrated wines. La Báscula started life with just two wines in the range, both Monastrell based red wines from Jumilla, south-east Spain. They now offer a full range - with recent additions from Rioja, Catalonia and an exquisite dessert wine from near Alicante.

In the vineyard

The Cariñena (Carignan) grapes are brought in from a neighbouring farm - and are the only non-organic part of this wine. From the 2012 vintage the wine will be fully organic. The soil is a combination of sand, limestone and clay, with vines grown at 500-600m above sea level.

In the winery

A blend of 30% each Garnacha, Cariñena and Syrah - with the remaining 10% made up from Cabernet Sauvignon.

Food Recommendations

Its fine, ripe tannins mean the wine can be drunk on its own but also particularly good with barbecued meats and chorizo sausage, as learnt from repeated experience!
