One of Spain's most iconic sweet wines - a passito-style moscatel. The name reflects Felipe Gutiérrez de la Vega's love and passion for opera!

Vibrant orange blossom, butterscotch and lightly herbal, liquorice root notes. A complex and richly-flavoured wine characterised by marmalade, nectarine, honey, spices, and great length. A fantastic dessert wine.

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.

Felipe Gutiérrez de la Vega makes wine from his 12 hectares of vineyard in Parcent, in the province of Alicante. The Moscatel grapes are partially dried on straw mats passito style after picking, resulting in a very high residual sugar. The wine is aged in a variety of barrels including Hungarian and Caucasian. The wine is largely unfiltered, using only a 'rock-catcher' to remove large particles - so may throw a protein haze in the bottle.

A great match with blue cheeses or fruit tarts.
