About This Wine...
La Bascula range
Báscula in Spanish means either a weighbridge for lorries or an old fashioned weight scales. When South African Bruce Jack of Flagstone winery and hispanophile Ed Adams MW (both Celtic Tigers at heart) decided on a label design they went for the latter rather than the former to represent balance in their carefully crafted pair of wines from Jumilla, Spain. Good wines are all about balance – balance in the vineyard, the balance between various components in the wine and in the case of Báscula the balance between Old and New World.
Catalan Eagle takes its name from the bird that soars above the nature reserve close to the winery. Pepe Fuster makes wine from his 23 hectare vineyard in Terra Alta which is near Tarragona in southern Catalonia. About half of Pepe’s vineyard is officially certified organic with the rest in conversion.
