A show-stopper from Bruce Jack and Ed Adams - fantastic red from old vine fruit.

The old vine Garnacha fruit provides rich, dark and complex, spicy blackberry characters. A big and serious wine - ripe and juicy enough to be enjoyed now but with enough structure to mature for a further 5 years.

The grapes are sourced from Pepe Fusters best vineyard plots across a 26 hectare stone-covered vineyard in Terra Alta, Catalonia - north east Spain. A blend of predominantly Garnacha and Cariñena, with a portion of Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah - the Garnacha vines are low-yielding, and nearly 50 years old. The wine spends 10 months in new Dargaud and Jaegle oak barrels.

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.

Try with rich casseroles, lamb burgers, roasts and fantastic sausages!
