More Info: La Báscula is a Spanish range produced by Master of wine, Ed Adams and South African winemaker, Bruce Jack. The name translates as weighing scales, and represents the balance between indigenous Spanish varieties and modern winemaking. The idea is to produce wines that represent excellent value for money whilst also showing off the areas where the wines were made.
