Super stylish with a lot going on! Apricot, citrus, grapefruit, spice, honeysuckle, aniseed and vineyards herbs all put in an appearance. Richly textured yet very refreshing with a pleasing minerally finish.

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.
