Tasting Notes

Weighty with sweet ripe blackberry and raspberry fruit and warm vanilla oak spice. The oak contact gives this wine a new world feel whilst remaining firmly and typically Spanish from the character of old-vine Grenache and Carinena.

Producer details

La Báscula is the name given to the Spanish wine range produced by Ed Adams MW and South African winemaker Bruce Jack. The term itself means weighing scales, and represents the balance between indigenous Spanish varieties and modern winemaking. Their philosophy is to focus on small volumes and really high quality - making wines that offer excellent value for money whilst being true to the regions they represent. 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 broad range of wines from regions including Rioja, Rueda and Alicante.

In the vineyard

Sourced from Pepe Fuster's 26ha vineyard in Terra Alta, near Tarragona. The vineyard is organically certified - with stoney limestone and clay soil, and vines grown at 500-600m altitude. A blend of Garnacha, Cariñena and Syrah - with the remaining 15% made up from Cabernet Sauvignon. Two month's contact with oak staves gives a touch of vanilla and added complexity.

In the winery

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

Food Recommendations

Smooth, ripe tannins mean the wine can be drunk on its own but particularly good with barbecued meats and chorizo sausage feasts.
