Finding Great Balance in Cataluña

The dynamic duo of South African winemaker Bruce Jack of Flagstone Winery and Ed Adams MW hatched a plan to start La Bascula based on a shared passion for Spanish wines, paella, tapas, flamenco and all things Spanish. They produced their first wines six years ago in Jumilla and since then their vision has steadily expanded to cover winemaking projects in Yecla, Rioja, Ribera del Duero, Catalonia and Alicante.

La Bascula means “weighing scales” which are depicted on the label, which is entirely appropriate as all the wines show a wonderful balance between high fruit quality and world class winemaking.. (La Bascula also means a large weighbridge for lorries but maybe that wouldn’t have looked so good on the label!) I hope you enjoy this innovative blend.


Garnacha Blanca

This is a lightly coloured form of Garnacha that you’ve probably tried without realising as part of a Rioja blend.

Whilst often included as part of a blend, it can produce impressive results as a single varietal if vinified correctly.

Outside of Spain it can often be included in blends from the Languedoc-Roussillon or Rhone Valley. It is arguably the most important white varietal from the Appellation of
Châteauneuf du Pape.
