Andy's Tasting Notes

I can’t improve on the winemaker, Pepe Fuster, tasting note! – “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 65% old Grenache and Carinena.”

Pepe Fuster makes wine from his 26ha vineyard in Terra Alta, near Tarragona in southern Catalonia. The vineyard is organically certified – with stoney limestone and clay soil, and vines grown at 500- 600m altitude.

A blend of Garnacha 45%, Cariñena 20% and Syrah 20%, with the remaining 15% made up from Cabernet Sauvignon. A month’s contact with oak staves gives a touch of vanilla and added complexity.

Producer Info

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.
